***Announcement: Early next week, we’ll be merging the current Fios and Wireless Communities into the all new Verizon Community! Beginning the evening of Sunday 12/4, both Communities will be placed in read-only mode. You’ll still be able to visit the Communities and browse content, but login will be disabled. On the afternoon of Monday 12/5, all users will be able to log into the new Verizon Community. We expect the new Community to be fully functional the morning of Friday 12/9. Additional details can be found in the Announcements board and under Featured Topics!
I have a network extender and all is well. But I am changing the modem tonight, do I need to reset the extender or do anything else or just plug it in the new router? thanks

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.
