Question about Computers & Internet
It should not require any changes - since you're going from Linksys to Linksys, the IP address of the router is the same (I believe). So shut down your computer (one with a wired connection to the router!), unplug the old router, unplug your modem, plug in the modem and wait until the lights settle down, plug in the new router and wait until the lights settle down, boot up your computer and wait until it's fully booted. Open a command prompt (Start Menu/Run/cmd) and type ipconfig /all - see if you have an IP address assigned in the range of 192.168.1.x . If so, open up a browser and see if you can access 192.168.1.1; it should demand a login, use your new router's default login (in the manual) and make the changes you want (including a new password!) - change the name of your wireless network, set up security, etc. As long as you make your SSID and security identical to what you had on the old router, it shouldn't require any configuration changes on the computers (though it may require a reboot to make them see the router properly after the changeover).
