All you gotta do is remove the keys HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\RasMan\PPP\EAP\25 and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\RasMan\PPP\EAP\26 from the registry and restart.

By "recently reset my WinXP..." do you really mean you RE-INSTALLED it?

I'm guessing that the answer to this is yes.  You'll need to re-install your DSL software also.  You should have a CD from your DSL provider and some instructions to get this going again.  If not, you'll need to contact their SUPPORT DESK for assistance.
