hmm, pppd seems to bring the connection up ok and also to get the DNS
servers, however it might not set them correctly...
what's in /etc/resolv.conf after you connect ?
can you ping directly the other side of the ppp connection (ie
188.8.131.52 according to your logs):
can you ping anything on internet through ip addresss:
(184.108.40.206 are the google public dns servers)

you gave the same link for the last 3
but 50-initd.sh takes care of the case, when pppd is run through gentoo
scrips... in that case, when you run /etc/init.d/net.ppp0 start, the
net.ppp0 service is marked as 'inactive' istead of 'started' because
pppd didn't connect yet... when it connects, this script marks the
net.ppp0 service as started...
btw, i newer used pon, i either used gentoo initscripts, or directly
, or sometimes used kppp from kde3
but if your problem is with dns, maybe the pon script / program doesn't
start pppd with the usepeerdns option... (you might consider also adding
the debug options to pppd options..., but you have to find out how to do
that with pon)
