that isn't possible.

if your old router will still boot and you can get to it via telnet or the gui, you can do an "nvram show", then copy and paste the required variables into notepad or similar.

then you can do an "nvram set" of those variables on the new router.

Sorry...anyone can make a nvrambackup of any router they get into. While I don't know of a way, if there was one, no one could post it here. Call you ISP and get it changed.
