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?

What type of internet connection your ISP uses, static IP, PPPoE, PPTP???

What type of router you have?

When you reset the router you also reset the login information for you ISP, you will need to reneter that information for you internet to work again

Depending on your router, you will need to check with your ISP to determine the following items (some routers have a wizard that can auto-detect the type of ADSL line you are on):
  • VPI
  • VCI
  • Encapsulation Method (LLC / VC-MUX)
  • Username
  • Password
  • PPPoE / PPPoA
  • MTU Size
What make / model of router do you have?
