Setting up wireless access for different renters each week. New WNR834B Router, new Vista laptop, both from Best Buy, router was configured by technician at Best Buy. After booting the cable modem and the router, we've been able to establish a network connection. If we disconnect, then we can not normally re-establish the connection without rebooting the modem and the router. How can we keep the connection live for the next set of renters?

No solid power light = NO internet. Check and make sure router is plugged in. Try unplugging router for half a minute and plug it in again check and make sure the outlet works where you are plugging the router in and if still no power light you can contact Netgear support at 888-638-4327.
For vista OS; Here are some troubleshooting steps that I suggest you try:
1. Go to "Control Panel" ( switch it to classic view ) 2. Click " Network & Sharing Center" 3. At the left side of " Network & Sharing Center", click Manage Wireless Connection ( under task) 4. Delete the profiles of your Wireless connections particulary the one you named for your Netgear wireless ( this is also known as SSID). 5. Click close including "network & Sharing Center"
Connecting to a Wireless Network on Windows Vista:
a. Click Start then select Connect To. b. Connect to a network window will show up. c. Select your wireless network's name or SSID and click Connect. Since this is an unsecured wireless, Vista will warn you if you wanna connect anyways. Go ahead and connect.
From the above configuration, please check if you can now access the Internet.
Unplug the Router. Unplug the modem. Wait about 15-20 secs. Reconnect the modem. wait about a minute or until all the lights are solid on the display. Reconnect the Router. Wait about another minute until everything is given time to start up. Try connecting again.
If it still does that, it may be a problem with your computer that your trying to access with wirelessly.
My mother had that problem on one of her laptops, it turned out that her particular installation didn't support WPA or WEP incryption. I did a full reinstall and now it works.
If you want to avoid a full reinstall you can try uninstalling the wireless network card, then reinstalling it.(Make sure you go to your manufacturers web site first to download the proper driver for your model)
If you have the correct wireless security and the laptop wont connect wirelessly, the best thing that you can do here is to access the router setup page and change some wireless settings on the router like the wireless channel , I advice you set the wireless channel to 11 then after that try to connect your laptop again to the wireless network and by the way change also the SSID or wireless network name of the router....
try to customize your wireless settings. change the wireless name/ssid to something else and change the wireless channel as well. verify also if there's a wireless security enabled, if it has you need to use the correct wireless security/network key when connecting your laptop wirelessly. you can go to the router's setup page to verify your wireless settings by typing the ip address of your router to the address bar of your web browser, http://192.168.1.1 (note: by default the ip address of the router is 192.168.1.1 unless you have changed it to something else. the default username is "admin" and the default password is "password")
