Since you reset the router, you are going to wait to unplug your modem as well as the router, then plugging in the modem for first and then the router. The reason for this is the router has to clone the mac address of the router. But if the router was reset, chances are that the router was not able to to clone the mac address. Another thing you can do is go into the router and going to the modem set ip address and make sure it grabbed the ip and isn't simply isn't using an ip at all.
