Replacing xb3 with xb6 router

Do I need to set up my new router with the old info, or is it on Xfinity servers?

The only thing that really changed when I replaced my XB3 was the SSID/password.  You can change it to your old SSID/password if you want to so that all your wifi devices won't have to be changed:
