You probably have your default route going through your ethernet before starting pppd, and pppd doesn't remove it.
  1) Remove the ether defaultroute (it's not necessary if you've got only
     one network, and if you've just got a few of them, add manual routes)
  2) Set up the defaultroute in an ip-up script and re-establish the 
     previous one in an ip-down script.
