I probably can't help with that part. However, I'd expect that's just a
problem in the device detection application, and not a problem with the

I'd think that if "ifconfig sppp0" shows that there's a connection, then
at least some of the negotiation went well. But that's a guess based on
just the text you've written rather than hard data.
It would be nice to see debug information. You could get that with:
/usr/bin/pppd call myisp debug updetach
That should dump the negotiation information to your screen and should
show how PPP is getting along. Posting it here may be useful to anyone
who might be able to help out.
Anything you can post about the diagnostics and information produced by
the system -- syslog output, command output, error messages, network
configuration (netstat -ni, netstat -nr, ifconfig -a) -- would probably
be helpful in chasing down problems. Again, posting that information
somewhere would be a good idea.
