Earlier today my wired internet decided to stop working. Every light on the modem and router is still on(including the wired one) yet when I click on my networks it shows one unidentified network instead of mine. The only problem that I can see right now is that the default gateway is blank. When i do confi/all I get for my default gateway.

My wireless which is running from the same router works perfectly fine. Any help would be appreciated. This is on windows 10

+1 Reboot modem and router. FYI make sure the modem is fully operational before turning on the router. 


If that doesn't work, try deleting the wireless profile on your computer and reconnecting to your network as if it was new. See here for instructions. It's on a Netgear support site, but should show you none the less.
