Ethernet setup when switching to new computer

Message 1 of 2

I have a FiOS gigabit Router connected to my current computer via Ethernet cable.

 

However, I am getting a new computer next week and will no longer busing my current computer.

 

Do I need to do anything with the new computer other than connecting the Ethernet cable from the Router?  I recall when I first had FiOS installed I had to go to a website and enter the router id and password - was that a one time thing or do I need to do this on the new computer?

 

Thank you and I hope you are all staying safe and well.

Nope. If connecting via ethernet it should pull an IP address and get right online.
