|Who setup the router? Has it been setup and working previously?|
Does the router logon page look like this?
This is a link to your routers manual.
Normally netgears use 192.168.0.1 not x.x.1.1.
"I have tried to type 192.168.1.1 into google"
Sorry but it REALLY helps to read the manual. You don't use google for anything in this case.
You either type in
http://router ip address
in the address bar then hit go
