So that is why it can't determine the ethernet address. ;-)
Sugest to tell your pppd not to use proxy ARP.
Proxy ARP is a way to let the remote system conected via ppp apear to
the other systems on the ethernet to be a local conected systems, so
no special routing entry would be required. Only useful if the remote
system is a single computer with no further network connection, that is,
not if you conect to the internet.
