Question about NetGear RangeMax NEXT WNR834B Wireless Router
I had a recent, brief power outage and even though the router is connected to a surge protector, ever since I have not been able to connect wirelessly thru either my laptop or desktop. A search for wireless networks shows an unsecure "Netgear" network, but not the home network I had previously set up. And when I try to set up security for this "Netgear" network, it does not take. I would hate to have to re-install everything, as I had problems getting the router to work in the first place. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
When you lost power it probably reset all your settings back to default. Looks like you have to do the nasty and start over. Sorry

Unfortunately what sounds like is the "brief" power outage caused the router to malfunction. Hooking up to a surge protector does not help because it was not a surge, but an interruption. With electronics, you must allow adequate time once they are turned off before they are turned on again or risk the possibility of failure. The brief blip in the outage caused the router to malfunction.
