I did something similar when I first got my ADSL set up, and couldn't
work out why. I eventually realised that I was trying to ping a machine
that was firewalled. I picked a different host and it worked.
So try a different host. :)

Yes. PPP doesn't negotiate the IP addresses, or any other connection
parameters, until after the authentication happens.

I'd believe it. A second ethernet card is cheap cheap cheap, and it'll
stop you accidentally sending packets out when you don't really want to
anyway. You can't even get half-arsed security if you don't physically
seperate your networks.
