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.

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.
