Well, there is a interface for the plip missing.

I you just have the loopback interface, there is no way for your
computer to reach the 192.168.0.0 network.
I haven't used plip so far, but a command sequence like:
ifconfig plip1 192.168.0.5 pointopoint 192.168.0.1
route add default gw 192.168.0.1
should do it (note, you can substitute the ip addresses by their
symbolic name if you want).
I have found this information in my printed copy of NAG, you should
look at chapter 5 (Configuring TCP/IP Networking), section "The PLIP
Interface", pp 69f.
