New Wireless Set-up

Had a wireless set-up that was working poorly. Have obtained new equipment. Must I delete the old wireless network before installing the new stuff? How? Or is it necessary to delete the old network? Many thanks.

Re: New Wireless Set-up

Just noting that my new wireless worked poorly too. I found the FIRMWARE was out of date on the new hardware.

A common issue it seems.

Thanks for your prompt reply. Actually, I haven't tried installing my new router, etc. I was wondering if there is anything I should do about the old network before installing the new equipment. Any chance of conflict of some kind? Thanks.

I'm making such changes all the time from 802.11b to 802.11g routers. All that ever happens in the firmware issue and people who forget what they entered in the old router.
