Re: 1 of the 2 computers cant get online
Pleaase check if the PC connects when plugged directly to the DSL or cable connection whatever you have without the router in between. That would ensure the functionality of the ethernet card on the other pc.

Make sure that your computer is able to go online directly through the modem. If your computer is able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working fine. You will need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router. open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

Is there any computer online using the router. check the IP address on that computer. If yes then you can open the router set up page on
that computer. router set up page is the page where you can check

Hook directly to the router hard wire. Go to configuration page for router and look at wireless security settings. it will show you Wep or some other encryption technique. It will also give you a place to view or change your wireless key. Once you do that write the key down and then connect wirelessly.
What have you tried?
Is this a new router? (Some Netgear have wifi turned off by default)
do you see the SSID name on your computer?
Has it ever worked?
It does happen that the output transistors fry so it works wired but not wireless

You can reset your Netgear router/wireless MR814 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.
Step 1: Check that your Netgear router/wireless MR814 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.
