I wish people would stop asking "what file do I need to edit?" and
So you've got a bogus default route defined? You want to remove it
Just about all configs are under /etc somewhere so...
grep "route.*default" $( find /etc )

That would fail as it would be executed too soon.
If you put this anywhere it should be in your /etc/ppp/ip-up and it
route add default gw $5
"isp's_ipaddress_where_you_connect_to" is passed to ip-up as the 5th
Of course this is still only a kludge, and a much simpler kludge is
simply remove the bogus route before you start PPP.
route del default
The real solution is still to remove whatever is creating the bogus
default route in the first place.
