This is only a good guess. You have told your PPP to have an IP address
which the router (at your ISP) doesnt agree with.
Your ISP (in case you have a permanent connection) will have given
you some details, including the static IP address.
But pppd will handle this for you and set up the ip address for you.
/usr/share/doc/pppXXXX will tell you how to get this to work.
man pppd will tell you which files it uses.
If you have a look at an earlier discussion about pppd you
will get all the info you require to set up a ppp connection.
