    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.
