Kppp not working


I use kppp to access internet through my mobile gprs and its properly configured. However for the past few days its giving error 16 i.e modem hangup and it shows that the connect script failed. I am unable to solve this problem through google or by changing any settings in the ppp scripts.

All my settings are working fine on windows and i am able to connect to internet with my mobile gprs with windows but not on Linux(Slackware 12)

Here is the output of /var/log/messages
pppd 2.4.4 started by root, uid 0
Feb 6 14:30:16 battleaXe pppd[3279]: Using interface ppp0
Feb 6 14:30:16 battleaXe pppd[3279]: Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/modem
Feb 6 14:30:17 battleaXe pppd[3279]: PAP authentication succeeded
Feb 6 14:30:18 battleaXe pppd[3279]: LCP terminated by peer
Feb 6 14:30:21 battleaXe pppd[3279]: Connection terminated.
Feb 6 14:30:21 battleaXe pppd[3279]: Modem hangup
Feb 6 14:30:21 battleaXe pppd[3279]: Exit.

I will be grateful to you guys if you could provide some help

Here are a few things to try:

Try /etc/pppd/options, insert into options "noauth"
Set the authentication mode to PAP/CHAP
Restore the correct permissions by issuing the commands
chown root.root /etc/resolv.conf
chmod 644 /etc/resolv.conf
