I tried using kpp and I could connect to my isp ( I am telling this
because pppd does run ) but whenever I try to
visit a website it doesn't work, browser says unknown host.

Sounds like /etc/resolv.conf hasn't been setup to point to valid DNS servers. Try adding a line like:


...to /etc/resolv.conf and see whether that solves your problem, only you should use the nameservers your ISP gives you if you know what they are. You can also configure PPP to set this file up for you when you connect via the "enable dns" config option in /etc/ppp/ppp.conf. [Maybe for userland PPP rather than kernel-based PPP?]
