I can not get on line and I am pretty sure that is because I think I changed the router address from Winston to Jan but I want to change it back to Winston. Right now I have the phone line directly to the computer and bypassed the router so that is why I can get on line

Have you got the literature which came with the router ? Or download the full manual from the maker.
You need the IP of the router (often 192.168.0.1 or check by using IPCONFIG /ALL in a DOS box from Command Prompt). Put the IP into the address bar of your browser and you should then see a login box -- the user name is always admin. The password may be left blank or be something like password or admin -- see router literature.
Once in go to Wireless settings and check that SSID is being broadcast not hidden, that wireless is enabled, that wireless mode is g or n or mixed mode (depending on the type of wireless adapter in your computer).
In Wireless Security select no security for the time being.
If there is an option for something named Access List or similar (admit or refuse by MAC ID) disable it.
Save settings and log out.
Disconnect ethernet and see if you can get back in to the router setup via wireless.
If success, restore wireless security settings in router and apply same to wireless adapter.
Please provide some more info.
Is you internet connection DSL, cable, Satellite?
Are you trying to connect wired or wireless to Netgear router?
when you say you "changed the router address from Winston to Jan", do you mean that the wireless name[SSID] has been changed?
What operating system do you have on this computer?
Which model of Netgear router is it? [Not necessary but helps to be specific.]
Would love to assist.
