Chances are all you will have to do is plug in your NE to the new router.  Unless your new router is drastically different the NE should treat this scenario as a power down situation.  When the new router is restored it should already have what it needs to pick itself back up and keep on running.

Let us know if it doesn't work for some reason.

Yeah you shouldn't have any problems.  May need to Power off n.e.  and let it acquire gps signal again.
