      Hello.
      There is absolutely no way that the netgear router has any control over your PC whatsoever.
      Sounds like you have major hardware problems on your pc.
      How do you mean switching off , are you seeing the normai shut down screens or is just cutting out.
      I presume your OS is windows, when it reboots do you get the recovered from a major hardware failure notice.
      Sounds like it might be time for some new hardware.
      I have had a shutting off error before and it turned out to be the CPU ( pins had melted lol).

      It just TURNS OFF, no warning like power has been cut off.

      It NEVR does it untill a netgear router is plugged in, had same problem 2years ago, stopped using it and problem hasn't happened again since, until now as i now have a netgear router again

      Go into the BIOS and check if Wake on Lan, or any other LAN actions are enabled, except the LAN itself of course. Is anything shown in the router log?

      What OS you are running?

      When did you last update your drivers for the network card?

      as mentioned previously check bios for wake on lan (or similar), also when in windows (assumiong your running windows) check the properties on the network card (wireless or ethernet) and make sure that power saving is disabled. If it is usb then go into system properties select the usb hub and uncheck "allow computer to turn of device to save power"

      To be honest it sounds more like a dodgy psu, quite a common problem and in all honesty the most likely culprit.

      Iv had this before and it does seem to be a LAN/Issue, Follow all the steps for the WakeOnLan disable.

      I wouldnt suspect it to be down to a PSU or CPU overheating, Those would shutdown and re-start, If I gather currectly, This just switches off and you have to turn it back on?
