Why did my wireless Netgear router stop working?

All was well until this morning. My wireless router, less than a month old stopped working.  I checked with my Comcast service provider and they made sure there were no problems.  Internet works (on this computer) while it is directly wired from the modem.  When I route it through the router, to the computer, it doesn't work. Wireless doesn't work but my network name shows on the wireless computers.  All the lights are blinking on the router and modem. Should I reset or what should I do?

Thanks,
Art

This may be a stupid question, but have you powered OFF the modem, and then reconnected it to the WAN port on the router, and then powered it back on?

Yes, I have reset both the modem and router. I hard reset the router by using a pen and pushing the button on the back of the router. the wireless recognizes "netgear" now but it won't work
