ADSL wireless router reset has knocked out internet

My mother living in Crete (Greece) needed to add a second notebook to her wireless network which had been set to mac filtering with only the one existing netbook in the mac table.
The problem here is that we didn't have the router login details, so reset the router to factory defaults via hard reset.
Now we can log in to the router using default login, but the router is not communicating with the ISP.
Any ideas where the heck I should start looking to sort this out?

Here is a link to their manual download page in various languages.  Might be worth a download and read.

Ok, thanks everyone.
I'll be having a nose through the manual from the link (cheers alanhardisty) and get back in a while.

Alan - I gave you a larger share of the point on this one. Your link to the manual was very useful.
Thanks again to you both.
