I have just purchased a new wireless router which I need in order to use a laptop in any room in the house. Can anyone please advise me if it is necessary to remove the old router and its software in order to make a clean install of the new router? How can this be done?

Old router: Netgear RP614.
New router: Netgear Wgr614

Unplug the old router.
Plug in the new router.
Configure new router with ISP username/password and wireless security key.
Tell laptop to connect to wireless network and give it the key you set.

That is all. :whistling: There is no "software" involved, Windows talks to the router automatically, unless you've told it otherwise.
