The RESET button is for resetting the wireless section of the router and does not effect the Internet connection. It looks like the wireless access is faulty especially when you cannot reset and configure the wireless settings. Try powering off the Netgear for 10 mins the connect the power again. If you still cannot RESET the Netgear then it is faulty and you need a new wireless router.
If you have changed the default password, you need to reset the router to the factory settings to get in with the default user and password (user admin and password as password, or if that doesn't work try 1234). Note that you will lose the ISP settings and wireless settings when you reset the router.
Here's a video on how to reset the router to the factory default settings: http://kbserver.netgear.com/media/flash/training/Troubleshooting/NG_WGR614V9Router_TS_LostPassword.html
You will need to check the wireless settings of the router. Is there any computer online using the router. check the IP address on that computer.
