Re: installing new router

for the most part if you just copy all the settings from the old router and configure the new one exactly the same way then you would not see any changes.
 
Your firewalls on your pc may have to be reconfigured but thats not going to affect basic connectivity.

Re: installing new router

I guess i could be a bit less cryptic.  open a browser and go to 192.168.1.1 and enter admin as a password unless you changed it.  you will see all the settings on your old router. same thing if you were to connect to the new router and follow the same process, but do not hook both of them up at the same time unless we modify the settings on one of them. 
 
other wise if you just want to start over and wipe the program off your pcs and go down that path theres nothing wrong with doing that but dont wipe your old router until you know the new one is working properly.

Re: installing new router

If you are getting a new router...i think you can try to update the firmware of the router. To update the firmware of router try this: 1. Go to www.linksys.com/download and select correct model number and version number. Download the firmware and save it on your computer. 2. Check the file it sould be firmware image file like .bin etc. If it is a compressed zip file extract it to get firmware image file. 3. Open setup page of router by typing http://192.168.1.1 in browser’s address bar, and typing password as "admin" and no user name. 4. Go to administartion tab there 5. Go to fimware update sub-tab there 6. Browse for the firmware image file and click update 7. when update completes turn off modem & router. 8. After 2 minutes turn on modem and after 2 more minutes turn on router. To get network key, connect your computer to one of the four ports on router using ethernet cable. 1. Open setup page of router by typing http://192.168.1.1 in browser’s address bar, and typing password as "admin" and no user name. Use your password if you have changed it earlier 2. Go to wireless tab. 3. Go to wireless security sub-tab 4. If security mode is wpa or wpa2 note down passphrase/shared key, if security mode is WEP note down wep key number 1. This will be your network key Well you need to input all the wireless settings of your wireless network on Wii. To get these settings: 1. Open setup page of router by typing http://192.168.1.1 in browser’s address bar, and typing password as "admin" and no user name. 2. Goto wireless tab. Here you will get the wireless network name/SSID. Here make sure wireless SSID broadcast is enabled. 3. Now goto wireless security sub-tab and here you will get the security mode and the security key. If security type is WPA note passphrase/shared key, and if its WEP note down wep encryption level and key 1 from listed 4 keys Then try connecting your 2 wireless laptops & a PS3 wirelessly to the new network you setup....it will definately work.
