Cannot reach internet from behind ASA 5505 using Adtran Netvanta 3200 Router.

I am having trouble configuring a Cisco ASA 5505 from behind an Adtran Netvanta 3200.  The netvanta is currently our CSU/DSU/Router/Firewall.  I would like to use the netvanta just to terminate the T-1 and use the ASA 5505 for the firewall/vpn features.  I configured both how I thought they should be setup, however I cannot reach the internet from behind the ASA 5505.  I can however reach the Internet when I give my workstation on of my public IPs, so this tells me the Netvanta is at least configured enough for access.  Any insight would be appreciated.
Here are my configs for both devices...

Thank you in advance...

Yeah, so you can rule out the T1 and the Netvanta router and focus on the ASA.  Do you see errors on the ASA outside interface?

show int e0/0

I would also try rebooting the ASA just in case a process hung up on it...
Everything looks good.  The only thing I see is that your DHCP server isn't enabled if you are attempting to use DHCP.

conf t
dhcpd enable inside

I have DHCP being provided by a differnt source.  The configs both look correct to me, but every time I try, I cannot get out past the ASA.  I can ping the Ethernet interface of the Netvanta from the Outside interface of the ASA.  This isn't making sense, I must be missing something.

Can you ping something on the Internet from the ASA?  Your ISP's router, their DNS servers?  The default gateway of the PC is right?
mediabsAuthor Commented:
Ok, here is where I am at.

The default gateway of my local machine I am using for testing is that of the ASA.  I made sure that my DNS server has the correct default gateway as well.  When I make the changes and try to access the internet, it pulls up the website I entered after about 10 seconds (  Once I get to google, I can no longer pull up any other site, or even do a search and have it return a result.  It seems as if the internet connectivity dies after the initial connection.  I am sure it is not pulling up a cached page, as it makes no difference what the first page I load is.  Once I make the first connection after the ASA comes up, it will not let me go any further, all internet activity seems to get halted.

I can ping the other end of the PPP circuit from the outside interface successfully every time.  I cannot ping the other end of the circuit from my machine, but I think that is because icmp is blocked at the inside interface.

Any Ideas?
Strange.  So, when you connect your PC to the router, everything works fine right?  It's only when you put the Firewall in place that you have this problem?  Are there any errors on the outside interface of the Firewall or inside of the router?
mediabsAuthor Commented:
If I give myself a Public static IP address and sit outside the firewall, I can browse the internet without issues (with my default gateway being the Ethernet port of the Netvanta).  It only becomes an issue once I get back behind the firewall with a with a default gateway of  I get out initially, but after that first connection is made, I can no longer access any other sites.  I am not using any proxy server or anything like that.  

My setup
