I have found Netgear interfaces to be a case of trial and error! As the switch is second hand it will have a different IP address and it appears you need to know this before attempting a reset.
First try switching off the firewall on the PC
I once had this problem with a Netgear access point so I connected to a PC running Wireshark and nothing else and then looked out for an odd ip address. Of course you need to have a PC on the same network so can be a needle in a haystack. Hopefully not.
Does an arp -a show anything in DOS?
