Ok, i did this. But it did not work. I forgot that i used ipmasq, too, so i 
disabled it. Maybe this interfered, don't know. And i changed the INPUT chain 
in the same manner (which may be wrong, because then all the benefits of 
packet filtering are gone).

Now the situation is the following:
I can ping the interface itself (the ppp-link held by the dlink) and i can 
ping the gateway for this interface (which is already an outside address). I 
can ping all the addresses outside - not by their names, but only by their 
numerical addresses. So this is now a nameserver problem. The strange part is 
that i can't reach those numerical addresses with any browser.

My resolv.conf looks like this:
search mydomain.net
nameserver (this is the dlink)
nameserver ... (of my provider)
nameserver ... (of my provider)

I read that the resolv.conf does only accept 3 addresses and played around a 
bit. But no matter what combination i tried, i can't ping addresses by their 
names but only by their numerical addresses. I disabled the internal firewall 
and filter of the dlink completely just to make sure that this is not the 

What am i doing wrong?
What's with the hosts,deny or hosts.allow files? Are they the ones i have to

Either i did a reboot or it's simply because i used pppoe without the dlink.

Thanks so far,
