IPCP: timeout sending Config-Requests

Hi mates, i have been trying to configure my linux box to establish an internet connection for weeks now. When i try to connect to the internet i'm getting the following error:

[root@localhost root]# pptp-command start
Using interface ppp0
Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/pts/16
IPCP: timeout sending Config-Requests
Connection terminated.
pptp-command: pppd indicated failure

I have downloaded all the required packages. I installed and configured the pptp client, the mppe capability and so on. Someone has got any idea what could be causing this pls? Thankx in advance for your help.

PS: I have an adsl connection and my modem is an alcatel speedtouch home. My Network card seems to be configured correctly since eth0 is marked to be active. I couldn't paste the urls from were i followed the steps since this is my first thread. sorry.
