I can suggest trying at least two things:
1. pon <connection name> debug nodetach
You'll see a lot of messages, and, probably, some errors. Most of
them are probably non-fatal, but try eliminating all of them by
setting right asyncmap, compression, authentication etc
In the end you should get IP and connection shouldn't break after a
minute or so, which is often because of 2.
2. ip route
Check that there's only one default route, that there's a route to IP
you're connecing with, aside from default one through it, and that
it's metric is lower than the default one. Check that you can still
ping that IP.
