Strange Dial up issue

As the title says, having a really strange dial up issue. Whenever I have the computer I am dialing up with connected to a router I use to connect the multiple computers in the room, I am unable to connect to the internet through dial up. The following error message occurs:

Opener: received ExecPPPDaemon
In parent: pppd pid 8685
Couldn't find interface ppp0: No such device
Kernel supports ppp alright.
pppd: By default the remote system is required to authenticate itself
pppd: (because this system has a default route to the internet)
pppd: but I couldn't find any suitable secret (password) for it to use to do so.
pppd: (None of the available passwords would let it use an IP address.)
It was pppd that died
pppd exited with return value 1
Sending 8669 a SIGUSR1

If I am not connected to the little network, I can dial up fine (With the exception that the "Couldn't find interface ppp0: No such device" still occurs).

I'm not sure exactly what I need to do to fix this problem. Any help would be appreciated.
