You probably don't have the DNS configured correctly.

If your ISP supports automatic (I think -- that is what I have and it works) you can 
check: "Automatic" in the: "DNS" tab in the KPPP set up widget.  Otherwise, you need to 
check: "Manual" and enter two NUMERICAL DNS addresses for you ISP.

If you are using automatic, your: "/etc/resolv.conf" file should probably be empty -- KPPP 
will add stuff to the file when it is running.
