Question about NetGear WGT624 Wireless Router
The first thing to try is to reboot your router. Most routers have an on/off switch -- switch it off for 30 seconds, then switch it back on and see if you can connect to the Internet once it boots back up.
If that doesn't work and you can connect to the Internet by plugging your PC directly into the wall jack, there might be a problem with the router's WAN port. What kind of Internet service do you have -- DSL? Cable? Fiber optic?
Also, when you plugged your computer directly into the wall to access the Internet, did you use the same cable that goes from the wall to the router? If not, it might be the cable that's bad -- try using a different cable from the router to the wall.

At this point I would suggest a power drain on both Router as well as computer, to do so, Turn off the router and computer, uplug the power cable, and keep on holding the power button (both router and computer) for 20 secs (make sure power cable is unplugged). Now pluggin and try to connect to Internet. If still not, continue with the below steps:
The best way to check if the computer can access to Internet is to boot the computer to "Safemode with Netwroking", to do so, restart the computer and as soon as it restarts keep on tapping F8 key, now select "Safemode with Networking" from the Advance boot menu. Login to Windows & select the Wireless Network and try to connect to internet. If you are able to connect to Internet then the issue is with the firewall on you computer, contact the firewall manufacturer for settings. If you are still unable to connect to Internet, then the internet setting are not correct, you may need to contact the ISP or router manufacturer.
