  I'm really new to FreeBSD and have troubles with PPP myself, but I think
what you need to do is "add 0 0 HISADDR".  Thats what I have to do after
using term mode to connect to my ISP and have started a PPP connect.  In my
case, I have to use term, as I haven't been able to make sense out of the
ppp.conf or get it working properly.  Can't even get it to dial.  So I use
term mode to start up PPP.  The last command is the add 0 0 HISADDR at the
prompt.  If I don't do that, I have no route.  Once that is done, everything
works.  So I think that may be what you need to do.  The same thing happens
to me if I don't.  Sounds exactly what is happening in your case.

Good luck!
