Can't fix my router, help!

Hey everyone,
My question is what can’t I hook up my router right? It was running great for a few weeks then out of nowhere it just stopped working. These photos I put up is what I see. Not sure if they help, but if anything knows, please help.

NETGEAR 108 Mbps Wireless Router WGT624 v4

I have it hooked up to cable with time warner cable.

Hi,

Can you log into your router? What make and model is it?

Looking at your second picture it looks like it can't hit your DNS Server. There have been a number of cases lately where ISPs have had similar problems.

Can you get into your router's Settings page?

Have you tried the Reset button on the router?

You could also give this a shot:

Does the router handle wireless too? It might be seeing one of your neighbor's networks.

thats pretty scary if he is picking up other people's connections lol

but i doubt that is the case i had a similar issue but this is because i took the router down then put it back up months later

I think 7 made 2 networks because the router quit you unplugged it and went on the web that is one network when the router was fixed it brought up another meaning routers net work

what i am explaning is you are fine but you have 2 connections one routed and one via modem meaning you must of unplugged it and put it back on then windows gave you two configurations

belive me when this happened to me i scratched my head too cause it didnt let me connect but then when it allowed me to connect it gave me options

I can see five or six of my neighbors networks. One of them is even unsecured.

(No, I did not get snoopy enough to look farther than that.)
