I use as my ISP as well, so maybe my ppp.conf will help you.  
Here it is:

 set phone 2522113
 set openmode active
 deny chap 
 accept pap
 set authname g304090
 set authkey  ****
 set ifaddr
 add 0 0
 set timeout 0

You will also need to add a default route after you type "ppp -auto whatever"  
For my ppp.conf, it would be :

route add default

Although that IP could be changed to whatever you want, since the "/0" at the
end says "I don't care if you use any of the bits I have suggested."  Just make 
sure the second IP of the "ifaddr" and the "route add" line match.

Let me know if this works.
