Windows 7: Advice on upgrading router on home network

Advice on upgrading router on home network

Will be replacing my old and trusty Netgear WGT624 router with a new Netgear WNR3500 this weekend

Using WEP 128 bit security now and I believe will switch to WPA2-PSK available on the new Netgear.

Assuming I will have to redo all the various PC's with new "keys" from WEP to WPA2-PSK...but other than that is there anything else I need to do before/after or during the switch over ?

2 Win 7 Pro PC's (hard wired)
2 Win XP Home Edition Laptops (wireless)
1 Win XP Pro desktop (hard wired)
1 Wii game console using the network (wireless)
3 shared printers (wireless)

Thanks, TR
