I have a brother who has a netgear router and it will not work right. I did an ipconfig and the default gateway states and I don't know what to do from there. The system doesn't recognize the wireless adapter at all. Is it trashed?

No. Most routers have a pin hole in the back that will allow it to be set to factory defaults. He probably has a setup CD that can then be used to configure but if not he can get what he needs from the Netgear site. On setup make the router secure. For security use wpa-2 psk and a jumbled 63 character password for WIFi. Also change the name of the network from it's default to something wierd and then make SSID broadcast disabled. Copy the MAC addresses from your computers and put enable them in MAA filtering and disableing all others. Be sure to back up the settings and also password protect the entire router so that it will require a password to configure. Check with your IP If you are running a DSL modem, connect directly by ethernet to modem and check connection before connecting router.
Most likely your provider will tell you the IP gateway that you will want in the router.

You can check where the router takes you when connecting by doing Start>run>cmd netstat -an
and see how the computer configures your ip biy doing Start>run>cmd ipconfig /all
