Wireless Router Help Needed

I'm attempting to reset a Netgear wireless router, model WGT624 v3, and I pushed the button on the back, but now the wireless icon on the front isn't lighting up, and sure enough, I'm not getting any connectivity.

EDIT: The router is plugged into a Comcast cable modem, if that makes a difference.

Give me a dollar.

i guess its possible your wifi is OFF by default.
connect a network cable to it with your computer.

use your internet browser and navigate to http://192.168.1.1 or possibly http://192.168.0.1/
username is probably: admin
the password is either: admin, password or its just blank.

go reset all your settings along with turning wifi back on.

While in there, CHANGE YOUR PASSWORD!!!

If you can get in there that easily, you have to wonder who else can.

That was already planned broski. I was just trying to get it handled via the iPhone, because I don't want to get up and go to the store.

you dont have any cat 5 cables lying around or any computers physically connected to the router?

another possibility is a failed reset. usually you need to hold that reset button down for about 3-5 seconds before it resets properly. you might as well try that.

^This.

Also, just a FYI. Most routers are 192.168.1.1 (Linksys)or 192.168.0.1 (DLINK)

I was unable to access my new DLINK WAP to set it up on my (Linksys dd-wrt router) Wi-fi network. I connected it to my laptop via Ethernet cable. Because my laptop IP was on a different subnet i.e. 192.168.1.x I had to go into the LAN card properties in Device Manager. Select IP v4 and hit properties. Then manually change the IP address on my LAN card from Obtain IP Automatically to Fixed IP. And I put in 192.168.0.10. And left the DNS fields blank. Save settings and reboot. Then I was able to access the WAP plugged into over Ethernet. I was then able to put 192.168.0.1 in my browser and access the DLINK WAP interface. I then changed it from AP mode to AP Client mode. Then I changed the WAP's IP address from 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.1.xx and before I saved I also changed the default password to a custom password. And set it up for WEP 128 bit encryption. Rebooted the WAP, then went back into my LAN card properties and changed it back from fixed IP to Obtain IP Automatically. And reconnected with my Wi-fi SSID.

Just telling you this because many people have gotten stuck when they have mismatched brands of equipment and can't figure out why they can't access a wireless/wired device. It's due to the device default IP being on a different subnet than your wired/wireless network configuration.

Did you change your router back to PPoe so that it talks to the DSL modem?

Cable modems (which he stated he had in the first post) don't use PPPoE
