Are you sure it is the 'netgear support page' you are getting to? - if the ip address wasn't correct you would get a message saying that, it would not redirect you to the netgear site, especially as you haven't apparently got internet access. Recheck the page you are getting to, it may look like a support site, but it could be the actual front page to your router setup.

Failing this, is it a brand new router? If it is 2nd hand then the previous owner may have changed the access ip address, all you need to do is look for the little reset pin button on the rear to set it back to default.

If you pull up your ISP IP address when you type ipconfig, then you are not connected to your router under NAT. I recommend that you check your wiring. If you are connected correctly. Then do a hard reset on your router.

First and foremost, read the manual. The manual (aka: setup guide) will detail the correct way to connect to the management interface of your router. You will want to have your computer physically plugged in to a LAN port on the router to do this.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.

192.168.1.1 may be on the label but that could have been re-configured! There's a web site that makes this really easy to figure out: Find My Router
