Hello!
Hopefully if you try the following steps, you might be able to get to the problem.
Troubleshooting Steps

  1. Disconnect the router, and make a call with your telephone. If this does not work, contact your phone company.
  2. Reconnect the router, checking that all cables attached to the router and computer are secure.
  3. Check that the WAN light is green or blinking green. This may take several minutes after connecting or rebooting the router. If the WAN light is off or blinking yellow, contact your ISP.
  4. Check the LEDs for the ports with cables are lit. If not, move the cable to a different port. If there are still no lights, then troubleshoot light status, as explained in the router manual.
  5. Check if the LED on the Ethernet adapter in your computer is lit. If it is not, then troubleshoot the adapter, do not continue this document. 
  6. Power off the router.
  7. Power the router on again.
  8. If you still cannot log on to the router, then do a hard reset on the router, as described below in reset router.
  9. If you still cannot log on to the router, try to get assistance from Netgear at www.netgear.com.
  10. Run the router's SmartWizard. This lets the router discover whether you have a static or dynamic IP address, and whether you are using PPPoE to connect to your ISP. (For routers without this utility, go to Step 14.)
  11. If a dynamic IP address is discovered, go to Step 15.
  12. If PPPoE is discovered, configure your router with the username and password from your ISP. Click Apply to enter the data. Go to Step 15.
  13. If a static IP address is discovered, configure your router with this information given by your ISP: the IP address for your router, the address of the ISP's DNS, and the address of the gateway. Click Apply to enter the data. Go to Step 15.
  14. If the smart configuration utility does not find an IP address: 
    1. Power off the router.
    2. Power on the router.
    3. Go back to Step 10.
  15. Click Test to access NETGEAR's online test page. If the page displays, then you have Internet access!
  16. If the page does not display in a minute, you may need to do something called MAC spoofing, which I listed below.
  17. Find out if the modem's IP address can be seen by looking at the Router's Status Page, as described in the manual. If not, then reboot the router and computer, in that order. Wait for the router to completely reboot before starting your computer.
  18. If the router's IP is seen, then there is a problem with your browser's settings. Your security may be set too high for the Internet service you are trying to use, or your browser may be configured for a dial-up connection. In Internet Explorer you check this using Tools > Internet Options > Security > Default Level. If the slider is set to "High", change it to "Medium". Click Tools > Internet Options > Connections. If the radio buttons in the center are greyed out, then settings for a non-dial-up connection are being used.

Reset for routers with reset button on back panel Write down configuration information such as IP addresses, security keys, opened ports and services, etc., that you modified. (The default username is admin and the password is either password or1234. Try these before resetting the router.)
  1. Press the reset button on the back until the test light blinks. This takes about 10 seconds. (To avoid accidental resets, the small button is recessed. Use a pen or paperclip to access it.)
  2. Release the button.
  3. Wait for the router to reboot.
  4. Log in with the default password.If the router was not cleared, try these additional steps AFTER the router has finished rebooting.
  5. Unplug the router's power.
  6. Press and hold the reset button. While the button is held down, reconnect router's power.
  7. Continue to hold the reset button for 20 seconds after reconnecting the power.
  8. Wait for the router to reboot.
  9. Log in with the default password.

MAC Spoofing
  1. Connect the computer that your ISP's installers used to establish Internet connection to the router.If you are unsure which computer was used, call your ISP, and ask what MAC address was registered. Then, using the instructions in the box below find the computer whose MAC address matches their records.
  2. Disconnect other computers from the router.
  3. (If you do not want to disconnect other computers, you need to know the adapter's MAC address, as described in the box below. Then, in step 6, type Use This MAC Address, entering the adapter's address.)
  4. In an Internet browser type the address 192.168.0.1.
  5. Type admin for the username, password (or 1234) for the password, and click OK.
  6. Go to the Basic Settings > Router Mac Address.
  7. Select Use Computer MAC Address.
  8. Click Apply. This automatically gives the router the computer's MAC address.
  9. Click Test to make sure you are connected. If you are not connected, contact your ISP.

I tried to get everything together to try to help you out.  Hopefully this stuff will get you online!

You might try Temporarily disabling your firewalls

Disabling Windows Firewall

Note: A firewall is designed to help protect your computer from attack by malicious users or software. Such software includes viruses that use unsolicited incoming network traffic that infects your computer. Before you disable your firewall, you must disconnect your computer from all networks, including the Internet. To disable your Windows firewall, please follow these steps:

Disable Internet Connection Firewall in Windows XP or Windows XP SP1

1. In the Control Panel, double click Network and Internet Connections. Then, click on Network Connections icon.
2. Right click on Local Area Network (LAN) Connection on which you want to disable the Internet Connection Firewall (ICF), and then click on Properties.
3. On the Advanced tab, you will see protect my computer or network check dialogue. Then, click on the Settings tab.
4. Click on OFF then OK.

Disable Windows Firewall in Windows XP SP2

1. Please click on Start, then click Run. Then, type in firewall.cpl and then click OK.
2. On the General tab, click OFF (not recommended) and then click OK.

Getting an intermittent connection from the router can be due to incorrect router configuration, wireless interference, firmware and even a hardware failure. If you are having problems from both your wired and wireless computers, you may try to bypass the router first and connect a single computer to the modem to check if you will get a stable Internet connection. If there will be no problems when you are connected to the modem directly, kindly check the following settings:

1. Please access the web-based utility of the router.

a. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
b. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field and click Enter or Return key.
c. A window will prompt for a user name and password. The default username is "admin" and the default password is "password".

Note: If it does not take password as the password, you might have changed it when you have run the NETGEAR Setup CD so please try other passwords. If you cannot remember the password, you need to reset the router and run the Setup CD to reconfigure it.

2. Adjust the MTU setting.

a. Click on the WAN Setup under Advanced tab.
b. Lower down the MTU size to 1492, 1400, 1358 or 1300.
c. Click on the Apply icon.

Note: You may verify from your Internet Service Provider (ISP) the recommended MTU size you can use.

If after adjusting the MTU setting and you still are getting intermittent connections, upgrade the firmware of your router.

3. Upgrade the firmware.

a. Please verify the router version and model either underneath or at its side panel.
b. Go to http://kbserver.NETGEAR.com/downloads_support.asp and please select the model of the router.
c. Click the appropriate version of the router.
d. Select the link of the latest firmware. Click the button Right-click and Save to Download. Save the file to the Desktop.

Note: Please perform firmware upgrade with Wired or Ethernet connection only.

e. Before upgrading, please write down all current settings since you need to enter them manually.
f. Using the computer hardwired on the router, please launch Internet Explorer and access again the router's web-based utility (refer to step 1).
g. Click on Maintenance and then Router Upgrade.
h. Click on Browse and locate the upgraded file in your Desktop. Then click on Upload.
i. Please wait for the router to reboot.

4. After a successful firmware upgrade, you need to reset the router.

a. Please push the reset button at the back of the router and release after 30 seconds.
b. Unplug the power adapter for 10 seconds and then plug it back in.

Note: Resetting the router will erase all the settings so it needs to be reconfigured afterwards. The router can be reconfigured using the setup CD or by manual configuration.

My face book works fine on my desk top but it stopped working on my I phone about two hours ago. can you help/


That happened to me this week, too. I tried hard closing the app, restarting the iPhone, updating the app - nothing helped. It turned out my wifi signal was strong, but my router was actually not connecting well to the internet. When I drove "off-site" (ie, Starbucks), FB worked great. Once I got my internet/wifi situation sorted out at home, FB works there, too.

Good luck!

IPOD Touch wont connect to internet?


Some troubleshooting techniques for this problem would be to connect to another network, maybe your neighbor's (one without a password) and connect back to your network, it could also be a problem with your router/modem even though it shows a full signal, try reconnecting your router or modem.. Whether this works or not, try using the "Easy Wi-Fi" app, its free, download it from the app store, and set it up, it could help in getting a signal or maintaining it. This is a common issue, and sometimes with the ipod touch it may connect and disconnect from the internet. If your computers or other devices are having the same problem you may want to consult your service provider. Hope I helped

On a Dell Latitude - no internet connection


The fact that the lights are on and that you get wireless signal means that the computer is making a connection with the router, but the router is not making a connection to the internet.
Try a sequenced power-cycle. Turn off the computer (completely off, not hibernating or sleeping), then turn off your modem (if you have one) and finally turn off your router.
Wait 5 minutes and turn it on in the backwards order. First the router, then the modem and finally the computer. If it's still not working, contact your ISP's tech support, there's probably an outage in the area or another problem with your internet service,

What sort of modem/router are you using. I had a problem with a DLink which required an updated bios to stop it from turning off the wireless connection even though all the settings said it was to be always on.

Ipod touch will not connect to internet


Solution #1 is always what apple agent do with iPhone and iPod touch calls. If that doesn't work they always recommend calling your ISP ( internet service provider ) however; you can actually do this yourself.
This may work but simply restart your router. Unplug your wireless G or B router from the wall. Wireless N routers will not work and are not compatible with both of these devices. Even though your computer may be working fine. The iPhone and iPod touches are not compatible with wireless N routers.
After disconnect the wireless router from the wall. Leave it unplugged for 5min or more, then re-connect it. This is called resetting your router.
After resetting your router turn your wi-fi off on your device and turn it back on and you should have some luck. If asks for password. enter in your password to join.
