Question about NetGear RP614 Router
Up until yesterday I could get to the internet, after some storms I can connect to the router but not to the internet.
Thanks to a different post on this website, I've been able to solve my very similar problem. The original person who gave the advice said the electrical problem can mess up your wireless so you should hit the RESET button on your Netgear box.
Please note, YOUR WIRELESS WILL NOT BE ON WHEN YOU FIRST RESET. You have to plug in manually to the netgear router with a cable to first initialize your wireless.
After that, I strongly advise you turn everything off and restart it in the method that Netgear asks you to, waiting their requested intervals of time. (1) Your cable internet box, wait 2 minutes before reconnecting (2) your netgear router, wait one minute before reconnecting, and (3) your computer.
I initially just hit the reset and tried to jump back online to redo my wireless settings when I had connected it with a cable. But it said the internet was "not working" and once I followed their suggestion of redoing the connections, I was able to setup my wireless internet.
The light came back on and then I did all my network settings and I'm back up.

You need to make sure your internet is still working. Its possible the storm caused some damage to the dsl line
Can you plug a normal broadband modem in and connect to the internet?
If you can, then try unplugging your router and plugging it back in, give it a few mins to boot up and try again (if you havn't tried this already)
If still no luck you'll have to do a master reset and set your router back up and try that, however at this point I'd guess the storm killed your router.
If you havn't got a broadband modem that plugs strait in, then ring your ISP and ask them if they've had any problems thier end.
hope this helps
