    - Hi there, I'm experiencing some issues with my Netgear Router. Our Internet lost access yesterday for around 1 hour (we believe it was the ISP's Problem) Any then my Brother Reset our Router by sticking a pin in the back of it.
    When the internet finally came back on, our Router is no longer name 'Wireless Home Router' and it's reversed to 'Netgear' and It's now become Unsecure?! - I'm trying to secure it.
    I've tried to access the Netgear online router settings but i cannot access the page. I've entered every possible known I.P i need to (192.168.1.1 & lots more) It doesn't seem to connect to any of them.
    I've run CMD and done 'ipconfig' and got the defualt gateway which is 192.168.1.5 - I entered that and i was unable to load the page. It just comes up Webpage Unavailable.
    I've done a 'Ping -R1' and that didn't bring anything up.
    Does anyone have any Info and help?
    Thanks
