Hi Ariesone,

Welcome to GeeksToGo! :)

Yes, sooner or later you will have to lose your connection if you set up the new router and switch over from the old.

Try setting up the new router and see if your laptop finds the connection in your list of available connections. If so you should be able to disconnect the old and connect to the new.

I am pretty sure your new router came with the owners manual, otherwise see here.

Edit: Moved from The Waiting Room to Networking forum. :)
