replacing main computer w/ new computer4

Hi:  Replacing my old main desktop w/ new computer.  Do I just replace the ethernet connection from router from old computer & attach it to the new desktop computer?  Anything else I need to do?  Thanks   Novice

If it is indeed a "router", then yes. If it is a straight cable modem then you'll need to powercycle it.
