I have the following in /etc/ppp/ip-down.d/reconnect:

sleep 5
while ! ifconfig | grep ppp0 >/dev/null 2>&1; do
	if ! ps ax | grep '[0-9] /usr/sbin/pppd call dsl-provider' >/dev/null 2>&1; then
		pon dsl-provider;
	sleep 15
) &

"dsl-provider" should be replaced with the name of your connection (the
file in /etc/ppp/peers/). The script is executed as soon as the ppp
connection goes down and continually tries to reestablish it until it
