Disable DHCP in both the router and all its clients and start manually assigning IPs. Check the pdf manual for details.

Is the router not getting an IP address from the Wan or is your computer not getting an IP address from the Lan?

open a command prompt and type "ipconfig /all"

See if your network interface is up and connected.
See if has an IP address.

If you have done a factory reset did you reconfigure the router?

I don't use Netgears, but in every other router, it's a simple task. Just look for DHCP and disable it, then add in IPs for each client. As I said above, you'll need to check the pdf.

Then go to each client (disconnected of course!) and locate the properties of TCP/IP in your LAN adapter's properties, as per this screenshot click here Set each radio button to "Use the following IP" and enter the IPs that you set in the router.
