hi davy,
all you should need to do is to setup the gateway address of the wan nic ( with the IP address of the netgear router. the gateway address of the lan nics should all be the ip address of the wan nic (

your setup should be something like this:

wan nic ip:
wan nic gateway: netgear router ip
wan nic dns:,

lan nic ip:
lan nic gateway:
lan nic dns:

hope this helps, let me know if I've picked you up wrong in your explanation.
