Cannot Access the Internet
If you can access your router but you are unable to access the Internet, first determine

can determine whether the request was successful.
To check the WAN IP address:
1. Start your browser and navigate to an external site such as www.netgear.com.
2. Access the router interface at www.routerlogin.net.
