device or resource ( wireless router ) not responding

i just added a wireless network then tried to connect a blu ray dvd player ...recoginizes the wireless setting/ home network available but connection to router(gateway) fails..i can access the internet fine. i am running win 7 and explorer 9..

 checked microsoft for compatibility of the netgear wnr2000v3 but didnt see it listed..

When i type the ip address of the router it keeps saying  "computer is correctly configured but device or resource is not responding"

Control panel/Network says i am connected

When i login to the router icon on desktop, i have to okay internet explorer to let me see contents...

I am not real computer literate so the answer to blazen knight did not help me.

This is my first time trying to add a wireless network and device.

I  would appreciate any help thanx
