pppd cant' assign a remote ip and i'm desperate

Hi everyone, I really hope someone can give me the answer to 
I'm having trouble with my connection, it's a wireless one using 
pppoe (pppoe from deb). And although my provider said they 
supported linux the only help i got from them was to check my 
wires. :( 

The problem i'm having comes up when I'm negotiating the 
connection, the most important line that i found in the syslog 
is this:
endor pppd[169]: Could not determine remote IP address: defaulti
ng to

Well leaving that out the connection is kind of fine, i can ping, 
connect to ICQ servers, but the problem comes up when i try to 
do for example
In links i'd see something like this:
Recieved 0B of 2.3 kB, avg 0B/s

Same thing for ftp, I can (don't know why) ftp anywhere do a cd, 
ls but when i try to get something it just stays there.

Another important file I've just remembered of is 
ppp-connect-errors and it says this all the time:
pppoe: read (asyncReadFromPPP): Input/output error

Ok, last but not least i'd have to say that in spite of my lack 
of connection my friend (running a win) connects with no problem.
I haven't changed any config files or others, I'm running sid 
(kernel 2.4.9 but I don't think it matters because I've tried 
others). What really bothers me is that we had to set up a 
proxy on that win machine as a workaround and I get 
disconnections every now and then ( I wonder who knows why :-D  

Sorry about the long mail!
