Error 718: The Connection was Terminated because the Remote Computer did not Respond in a timely manner

Yesterday night while trying to access Internet, I received one error message and failed to access Internet. The error message is " Error 718: The Connection was Terminated because the Remote Computer did not Respond in a timely manner". I am using Tata Photon Plus to access Internet from my laptop. Network Connection Prompt gives two options either redial or cancel the connection. I tried redial but right after the authentication process, I received the same Error 718. The error message seems like the modem is trying to authenticate the connection but the remove server/computer seems stopped responding to the modem request. This is how the error 718 message looks like.
