Please follow the steps below to reset the router.
STEP 1- Make sure that your wireless router is turned ON.If it doesn't, Press and hold down the "reset" button on the back of your router for 30 seconds.Please use a paper clip to push it for 30 seconds.
STEP 2- The reset button is inside a very tiny hole on the back of the Netgear router.
STEP 3- After resetting the device, press the "Power" button to turn it on.
STEP 4- Make sure the internet modem is connected to the "WAN" or the "Internet" port on the back of the router
If the Netgear Wireless N-Router is still not powering on:-
Then another Way:-
I would recommend you i.e. to update the firmware on the router using the below steps: Because the device's firmware is most likely damaged. According to Netgear, if the Power/Test LED blinks slowly and continuously, the device's firmware must have experienced problems during an update. If the LED light is blinking and the device is not performing as it should, contact Netgear for additional troubleshooting and possible repair.
Open the router page using the following way:
a. Connect a computer to the router using any one of the 4 available ports. b. Open a web browser like Internet Explorer, Mozilla and all. c. Access the router's GUI by typing 'http://192.168.1.1' or 'http://www.routerlogin.com' in the address bar. d. When prompted for Username and Password, please enter 'admin' for the Username and 'password' for Password.
and see here how you can upload the firmware of the router: A. Open the router page using the steps mentioned above. B . Under Maintenance, click router Upgrade. C. Click Browse and locate the upgrade file. D. Click Upload. E. Wait for the router to reboot. F. Click on 'Logout' (at the bottom of the list) from left menu.
I hope this information allows you to Resolve this issue.
