436R wifi router unable to connect with a K3765 USB modem

by ani_436R / January 3, 2012 12:09 AM PST

Hello, this problem has just cropped up and I am a newbie at this. Help and pointers truly appreciated.
My WiFi router ( model 436R manuf. unknown ) is unable to connect to the net of late ( couple of weeks, everything was magic for about 6 months ).
The last few lines from router log are :
--------------------------------
Jan 1 00:01:30 (none) daemon.info pppd[784]: Serial connection established.
Jan 1 00:01:30 (none) daemon.info pppd[784]: Using interface ppp0
Jan 1 00:01:30 (none) daemon.notice pppd[784]: Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/ttyUSB0

Jan 1 00:02:08 (none) daemon.notice pppd[784]: send SIGPOLL to 271
Jan 1 00:02:08 (none) daemon.info pppd[784]: Terminating on signal 15.
Jan 1 00:02:08 (none) daemon.info pppd[784]: Exit.
-------------
The router is a Linux build :
Jan 1 00:00:21 (none) user.notice kernel: Linux version 2.6.21 (root@localhost.localdomain) (gcc version 3.4.2) #642 Wed Sep 15 12:08:53 CST 2010
--------------------------

Apologies for the long post, can someone point me in the right direction please. So far -all I am being told is to hard reset the router which yields zippo.

I am doing all this in India on the VODAFONE network.

Muchas gracias amigos.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
