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

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 00:01:31 (none) daemon.warn pppd[784]: Warning - secret file /var/config/ppp/pap-secrets has world and/or group access
Jan 1 00:01:31 (none) daemon.warn pppd[784]: Warning - secret file /var/config/ppp/pap-secrets has world and/or group access
Jan 1 00:01:31 (none) daemon.notice pppd[784]: PAP authentication succeeded
Jan 1 00:02:02 (none) daemon.warn pppd[784]: IPCP: timeout sending Config-Requests
Jan 1 00:02:08 (none) daemon.notice pppd[784]: Connection terminated.
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.
