Have you tried resetting the router? Make and model?

Hello,

Manual here: ftp://downloads.netgear.com/files/wgr614v7_ref_manual_20apr06.pdf

To reset the router to default settings do the following:


To restore the factory default configuration settings without knowing the administration password
or IP address, you must use the Default Reset button on the rear panel of the router.
1. Press and hold the Default Reset button until the power light blinks on (about 10 seconds).
2. Release the Default Reset button and wait for the router to reboot.

That should restore the router to default settings.
