Not at all because the router should have a ppp client embedded and 
already setup.

Well, you need to understand what it is going on.

- pppd service is removed because your device is not a modem but a router 
and you don't need to run this service on the client (the same way you 
don't run it in windows, right?)

- Your ethernet card needs to be filled with data, and you can do this by 
using dhcp or by manually adding the data.

So start by giving us the output of:

cat /etc/network/interfaces
cat /etc/resolv.conf
ifconfig eth0
ip ro
