I used PortForward.com and I was enabling Static IP in my Netgear Control Panel...And I accidently locked myself out of the control panel basically I enabled Static IP and I entered the IP address in properties part of my wired connections in the "Network Connections" area od Windows and now I can't reaccess my router.
I'm in desperate straits as people will kill me if I don't get the DSL running by seven today...In exactly eight hours.

what model of router is it?
all you should have to do is reset the router..usually by holding in the reset button...unplugging it...while holding the button in...then plug it back in...still holding the button...that should reset back to default...

This section explains how to restore the factory default configuration settings, changing the
router’s administration password to password and the IP address to 192.168.0.1. You can erase the
current configuration and restore factory defaults in two ways:
• Use the Erase function of the router (see “Erasing the Configuration” on page 6-7).
• Use the Default Reset button on the rear panel of the router. Use this method for cases when
the administration password or IP address is not known.
To restore the factory default configuration settings without knowing the administration password
or IP address, you must use the Default Reset button on the rear panel of the router.
1. Press and hold the Default Reset button until the power light blinks on (about 10 seconds).
2. Release the Default Reset button and wait for the router to reboot.
If the wireless router fails to restart or the power light continues to blink or turns solid amber,
the unit may be defective. If the error persists, you might have a hardware problem and should
contact technical support.

It's rather complex but it follows this...Unplug router. Leave DSL running while running though the unplugged router ((By unplugged I mean the power cord. )) and type routerlogin.net/basicsetting.htm and I was able to access the Control and enable dynamic Ip configuration from the Control Panel.
