My router has been working just fine for over a year, and just this morning it started being unable to connect at more than 1mbps, and now the desktop computer that uses the wireless connection can't access the internet. It appears to be unable to find the router at all, because where it usually says 'Connected to Internet', it just has '-.-.-.-.-'. If there's any more information needed, please let me know!

What did you install last on the laptop?, if its anti virus disable it and try connecting.If after that it does not work ,reinstall the computer OS something is corrupted.It's definately not the router issue.
Try The Reset Switch on the back...Then If that doesnt solve the problem plug it directly into a computer alone and go to your web browser and type in http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.2.1 It is usually your default ip of your Router and look for a reset link...if that doesnt work try a firmware upgrade from NetGears Website
DHCP may not be working on the router. What IP address does the router give your computers? It should be a 192.168.123.xxx address as default. If you are not getting an IP, then you will have to set a static IP in the range above to connect to the router setup webpage and reenable DHCP.
-- who is your internet service provider -- what is the operating system of your computer? -- is this working fine before or is this a brand new router

if this still didnot work, upgrade the firmware of your router
you say it suddenly stopped working, if you can connect to the router via ethernet cable then try to access the router's web utility page and make sure your router is in mixed or G-only. If you can't still connect to the router through wireless then try restarting the Wireless Zero Configuration from windows. This is how it's made: Go to control panel and double-click "administrative tools", then double-click "services". You will see a list, scroll down to Wireless Zero Configuration and click "stop", you'll see a progress bar. After that click "start", you'll see another progress bar. Now try connecting to your router via wireless connection. If you still can't connect then repair the connection by right-clicking the wireless icon at the bottom right corner. Keep repairing until you connect.
Hope this works!
