can reset your Netgear router to the factory settings from within the
router manager. The reset procedure removes all user-configured settings
and returns the router to the original factory settings. For this
reason, only reset the router if you encounter problems that can't be
solved with other methods.
Check that your Netgear router is properly connected with your system
or not. If it is OK, then press reset button on Netgear router for at
least 10 seconds. The 'test' light should flash during this process.
Step 2: Now open browser and enter Netgear's IP address into the address bar. Generally, '192.168.0.1' is the Netgear router IP address but you can find specific IP address in Netgear router manual.
Step 3: Now enter your default username and password to log in to router.
Step 4: Click 'Erase' button under the 'Revert to Factory Default Settings'.
This process will erase all your previous changes that have been made
to the router and restore the configuration settings to factory setting.
Don't interrupt the process until the process is finished.
Once the router's 'test' light has stopped blinking and the configuration page you are on has refreshed, the router has been reset.
you can try typing in your browser address bar www.routerlogin.net then press enter this should bring up your routers setting wirelessly but this will only happen if your laptop detects your routers wireless network.
if you can connect your laptop to your router using ethernet cable you can go to the command prompt then type in IPCONFIG then enter this should pull up your ipaddress and the default gateway is your routers Graphical User Interface where you can go and change the settings, your Netgear default gateway should be 192.168.1.1 this is the default gateway that should show in command prompt for netgear routers.
If you are going to use wireless make sure in the router the wireless capability of your router is enabled ^_^
your settings depend on what your Internet service provider requires you for settings
I am having exactly the same problem. It occurred on Sunday 17th. I have phoned Optus who seem unable to work out what has happened. It will work wirelessly but not recognise it when set up via ethernet cable.
If the laptop is 3 years old then it probably requires a chipset update. Goto intel's website and use the driver update utility. If this does not work then your wireless connection may be broken. You can buy a wifi USB card for less than £10 if you shop around. Good luck
See what ip,gateway and DNS its getting from the access point.If its getting the right ips then your network should work. If it is not getting the right ips then there must be some problem in the DHCP configuration of the access point
