If this does not work you will have to setup the router for wireless if it is att wireless you will have to call them to give you the password to set it up.
You may need to reboot your cable modem before plugging in the router's power cord.
Are you certain that you re-plugged the Ethernet cable from the cable modem into the correct port on your Netgear router?
If plugging your computer directly into the cable modem allows you to go online, then just re-boot the router once all of the ethernet cables are plugged in to the correct places and then power it back on, and you should be okay.
Hi dude check this would be useful http://kbserver.netgear.com/pdf/wgt624v3_ref_manual_25Apr05.pdf
Things You'll Need:
Cable or DSL modem
WGT624 Installation CD
Plug the Netgear WGT624's AC adapter into a wall outlet. Plug
an Ethernet cable into the yellow Ethernet port on the back of the
Netgear router. Attach the other end of the cable to the Ethernet port
on the back of your modem.
Insert the installation CD that was included with the Netgear
WGT624 into your computer's disc drive. Click the language option you
want to use and then click "Setup."
Follow the setup wizard's onscreen instructions and then
click "Finish." The wizard will automatically detect your Internet
settings. Open a web browser and navigate to "http://192.168.1.1."
Type "admin" in the Netgear's "User Name" text box and then
enter "Password" in the text box labeled "Password." Click "OK."
Click "Yes" and wait for the latest firmware upgrade to
install. Double-click the upgrade file and follow the onscreen
instructions to install the upgrade.
Click the "Wireless Settings" link if you want to password
protect your wireless network. Click the "WEP" radio button and then
type in the password you want to use for your network in the
"Passphrase" text box.
No install CD needed with valid working internet with modem. First you need to turn off your computer then connect the working hsi modem to the Netgear router with the ethernet cord (looks like a thicker telephone wire) connect the ethernet cord from the back of the modem to the first single port on the Netgear not the ports labeled 1-4. Then with another ethernet cable snap one end into one of the 4 ports available and the other end snap into your computers ethernet port. Then unplug the MODEMs power cord for 30sec plug it back in wait for modem to boot back up with all of its lights and turn the computer back on. After install is finished you can now go and download your routers firmware from Netgear. In your address bar where it reads http://.........go ahead and highlight this and backspace it all until it clears to blank. Type in 192.168.1.1 and then hit enter. A window will pop up asking for username and password. For username type in "admin" for password type in "password" this is default and will always work unless someone has changed the username and password already on your home network, in which case contact netgear support. But if it does work the you will get Negear Smart Wizard. Here is where you can click on "Setup Wizard" and follow the prompts to download latest firmware and then Finished. Close down the netgear page and happy wireless internet surfing.
If you connect the computer directly to the modem, does it work? If that works then the modem is working. Now connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router. You will need to open the set up page of the router to check the settings of the router. You can set up the router without the CD also. It is very easy. Click Here for step by step instructions about how to set up the router
If you are connecting to either broadband cable or dsl you pretty much have the same steps. First hook up the modem (dsl or cable) with its own power cable and its own internet connection coming in (dsl will be a usually green phone cable)(cable will be a coaxial line that the cable guy already hooked up). Next get the netgear router and plug in its power cable somewhere near the modem, then plug in a preferably crossover ethernet cable to the uplink connection on the back of the netgear, should be on the same side as where the power cable went in. (and yes you can probably use a straight ethernet cable as well) Plug the other end of the ethernet cable into the only location it will go on the modem, both boxes should already be setup for use, if for any reason they do not work just pull the power on them both at the same time and wait a minute or two and replug them back in for power resets.
you need to remove the connection saved.
after securing the wireless router, before you try to connect. Go to
-Right Click your Wireless Adapter
-Click Wireless Network Tab
