    If you are sure that your setup is fine and the rest of the devices are fine as well, make sure that you are using the right cable, usually the cable between router to pc is not a cross over. Try changing it to simple patch cable (ethernet cat5 or cat6).

    Hope that helped thanks!

I tried a firmware upgrade to resolve an issue with the router dropping WiFi connections but now it doesn't work even after a factory reset

Wrong firmware. Never upgrade firmware unless recomended by the mfgr or the unit itself can upgrade automatically like most newer Netgear models.

Buy a new router, they are very inexpensive.

What you can do before purchasing a new router is to try updating the firmware on your modem. The firmware can fix minor "bugs" or "malfunctions" that a device can have. You can go to the link below and try updating the firmware. The information you'll need to ensure you download the correct firmware is the "version number" of your modem. On the bottom of you modem there should be a "DG834G" with a "v" then a number. That is your "version number". If you need any further assistance, please let me know.

Plug in the power cord. Push and hold the reset button for about minute. This should do it. If not contact netgear at 1-888-638-4327.
