I did push the lowest button called Push-N-Connect. I assum this is the wireless button. Thanks

   Is that accurate?  Look for "Model" on the product label.

 

> [...] I assum this is the wireless button. [...]

 

   Why assume anything?

 

   Visit http://netgear.com/support , put in your (actual) model number,
and look for Documentation.  Get the Setup and/or User Manual (at
least).  Read.  Look for the LED descriptions and "Troubleshoot".
Further reading might not hurt, either.

And you'd assume wrong. Like @antinode says, the manual is beneficial. 

you can get it here: 

https://www.netgear.com/support/product/WNDR3700v1.aspx

make sure to select the correct version from the drop drown box as there's 5 versions of the wndr3700.
