Hi i have just changed my old  sky hub  router, for the new sky q router.plugged it in and all seems to be working great .my question is should i change my router details. obviously my new router as a new password. do i need to change this .also i would like to change my ,password  and username. does the computer automatically pick up on the new one(  router i mean) or is it still working on the old settings.these might seem daft questions to you , but please indulge me i am not as clued up on computers as you are.so any help you can give me will be appreciated.

i am on windows 10, sky broadband.

There are security settings, a password, and other options when you first set up a new router.  I found a fairly comprehensive article which addresses this, you can find it here.

Thanks DC3, great article .i admire you if you understood it all. but i got some of it . i also read some of the others. i checked my router settings and i am all ok and up to date i was a bit concerned that it hadn't registered the new one . but it had. and the latest network  WPA2+AES. so i am happy again.

 

thanks again..
