Started using Xfinity hotspots, now can't access internet via Netgear wifi

I have been using my wifi hookup via, the C7000v2 router with Xfinity internet.  It has been great,  Today I decided to use the xfinity hot spots offereing,  Now I can not accesss my internet  via the Net gear wifi.  I can however, access the internet via xfinity wifi through my router.  All the lights are working and show that I have complete conectivity,  but ....

Any help,  It almost feels like Xfiinity has blocked me from using my own router..  

Cheers, 

C.

   What, exactly, does that mean?  Did you make any hardware changes?

   "can not" is not a useful problem description.  It does not say what
you did.  It does not say what happened when you did it.  As usual,
showing actual actions (commands) with their actual results (error
messages, LED indicators, ...) can be more helpful than vague
descriptions or interpretations.

   What, exactly, does that mean?  Is this "my router" the C7000v2, or
something else?

   It's nice that you're happy, but revealing what each LED is doing
(color, activity) would have more value.

You might get more help, and find earlier questions and answers about your hardware, in the appropriate section for your device. That's probably here:
