Disconnect the Router to configure it

by Who Am I Really In reply to lan -could not acquire ne ...

As a security precaution to make sure your router isn't compromised while configuring it;
first disconnect the Router from the DSL and internet and connect the router with a CAT5 or higher cable to the PC you intend to configure the router with,

then either reboot the PC so as to acquire a DHCP address from the router, then configure the router
or issue two commands from the command prompt window
a> ipconfig /release
b> ipconfig /renew

if you don't receive a new DHCP assigned IP address from the router on a wired connection then try and reboot if still no IP address then it's possible the router is fried.

note: do not attempt to configure a router through it's wireless access point, configure a router only through a hard wired connection using a CAT5 or higher ethernet cable.

I did not ask for the Broadband ISP Provider.
I asked for the Router Make and Model.
BSNL doesnot make routers.
Again give more details for us to solve problems for you.

If you can connect through lan to any other system then there is a problem in the configuration settings on the router. As you mentioned in your OP that you have pressed reset button. This has set the configuration to Factory Default. Basically the is set to as default for accessing. Call BSNL to do the setting if you are not able to do the same.
