I'm not sure there is, I've had a similar problem like this before,
and I got around
it by writing a simple script that would try and ping a local site 4
times, and if no
responses got back it would killall ppp and delete the default routes
and tell ppp
to reconnect. It worked quite well when put into cron to run at 1
minute intervals.
