Before to do it, I wish to know if there is anyone who had a similar issue and how he solved it.

The Wireless LED is suppose to be on by default when you are first setting up the router. Netgear's support obviously realised that something was wrong or faulty hence the reason that they advised you to return it.

Thank you for taking the time to post a picture that is very clear.
The fact is that both the DGND3700 and the WNDR3700 do exist. We must be sure about which one we (or at least me) are dealing with instead of haring off in a certain direction, only to realise at some later stage that we aren't talking about the same unit.
Secondly, I thought that I had been very clear on what to do. This allied to the fact that Netgear support had themselves instructed you to return the router. For that matter, it's possible that when you were dealing with NG you also told them it was a WNDR3700 and that's why they told you to return the unit.
I'm just seeking clarity. I am not trying to make fun of you, and if you got that impression, I apologise.
Thanks to Websurfer posting in graphic detail, you should have no confusion now.
