Windows 7: My new router will not load the configuration file from old one

My new router will not load the configuration file from old one

I'm currently using a Netgear WNR2000 v4 wireless router. I am trying to upgrade to a Netgear WNR3500L. I cannot get the 3500 to accept the configuration file I saved from the 2000. I have tried several different methods including renaming the WNR 2000's file to the WNR 3500's file name. Is there some other way to do this, or am I stuck entering the information manually?
Reason for the upgrade. I was told the 3500 would handle the increased number of devices better. Also, the wireless radio on the WNR200 sometimes quits, and I have to reboot the router. If I turn the wireless radio off, can can the WNR2000 be used as a 4 port switch and daisy chained to the WNR3500? If so, what order should they go in (modem > switch > router or modem > router > switch).
