Because I am trying to work by elimination. I assume there is some 
difference between the laptop and the desktop which you overlooked and 
that no one so far can point to as the reason for the desktop failure.
Since you presently have no other way to try and solve the problem why 
do not you try this way?

This also suggests that there is no problem with the modem setting on 
the desktop. Therefore, by elimination, there is probably some problem 
with the ppp process on the desktop.

What are the syslog lines on the {laptop,desktop} regarding the ppp 
Have you tried making the ppp process on both machines write more 
information to the syslog file (or other logging file)? What about plog?

As far as I know chat + ppp can write enough information to the log 
files in order to debug them. The problem is that many people (me 
included) do not know how to interpret this information correctly.
