open Command Prompt, type 'ipconfig/all' and hit Enter. Check Default Gateway, it should be 192.168.1.1, your Netgear device's IP address.
If you are still unable to browse the Internet, ping your router's connection to the PC. Open Command Prompt, type 'ping 192.168.1.1', hit Enter. If your PC is receiving connection from your Netgear device, you will see a message like Reply from 192.168.1.1: bytes etc. If there is no connection, you may see the Request timed out message.
The Request timed out error can occur due to two things: (1). incorrect physical connection between your Netgear device and the PC or (2) incorrect wireless network setup & configuration. Recheck and correct the Ethernet connection between your PC and the Netgear device. Also reinstall the TCP/IP stack and update Netgear device driver software.
When done, check back if you can browse the Internet or not. If the problem persists, hard reset your Netgear wireless router
RF interference is the most common reason why WiFi will drop signal from time to time.First – make sure your wireless router is not next to a source that can cause interruption.I have mine on a shelf about 5 feet off the floor.Also make sure that your wireless home phone is not right next to it. Home phones can cause issues with signal as well.
IF THE WIRELESS CONNECTION DROPS, try the following troubleshooting steps
1) connect Modem-Router-Computer
2) Open router UI (www.routerlogin.net)
3) User name : admin , Password: password
4) on the left hand side in the blue panel select Wireless settings (under Setup)
5) SSID: (user defined)
Channnel : 11 or 6
mode : upto 54 mbps or 150 mbps
Security : WPA-PSK (TKIP)
PASSPHRASE : (user defined)
This should resolve the problem.
If the problem still persists u can try upgrading the drivers of the wireless USB adapter.

You need to reset the router if the lights are flashing. Press the reset button at the back of the router for about 20 seconds then release it. Now unplug the power for 20 mins as well and plug it back in. Make sure your connection is right. PC connected to port 1 and modem to WAN or Internet port.
