i have a Netgear Wireless-N150 Router (WNR1000) and have had it since 2010. just recently it all of a sudden stopped working. i havent downloaded anything new, or updated anything, no power outages or severe storms in my area. i cant connect my computer or my Wii console (which was able to connect wireless before). im so stumped and not sure if i need to go out to buy a new router or try and fix this problem manually

Hello and thank you for your question today. My name is Jason. I look forward to helping you today.

If you plug one of the computers into the Netgear router with a cable, do you get online or even pull and IP address?

May I ask who your Internet service provider is?
