If your Xbox isn't seeing the SSID odds are your Netgear is set for Wireless N only.

Xbox is not compatible with Wireless-N only networks, so first step will be to make sure that the Wireless Mode on the wireless tab of your Netgear isn't set for 802.11n (you can pick the G/B or whatever other combination is listed there. In terms of performance you are not likely to cap even the lowest settings[wireless b] since 11Mbs is still decent speed and likely more than what you are given by your ISP).

(This is on page 21 of manual below)

The other thing you will want to check is that if you have secured your Wireless network, the Xbox adapter is compatible with WEP(which is terrible) and WPA, not WPA2.

Configure the Netgear first with a computer, after it has been configured then configure the wireless card in the XBox.
1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable.
2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL
3. Enter the router setup login and password
4. Change the admin password
5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WAP2
7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
9. Configure the wireless cards on each computer/s and XBox with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.
10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computer/s and XBox should be able to connect to the router.

In my lap with windows 8 version netconnection i s not available,but with same wifi modem..NETGEAR N150 WIRELESS D S L Modem Router mobile is net.connected.

Netgear are products that are last to just about 90 days. I am a computer tech and do a lot of house and business calls to TS networks. Most problems come from Netgear, once they switch to another brand, the problem disappear. Even I had a wireless Netgear router, and had to return it because the life span was about 4 month and the complimentary support is only 90 days.
Just by rebooting the modem (turning it off and on) usually fix it for about 8 hours, then the cycle start again. After rebooting the modem/router, delete your saved network from Windows 8 and start fresh. That should work.
