Hi Norman,

Is your old router still plugged in? If so, it might be worth disabling
the wireless (if you have used it to connect to other networks) as this
may confuse the system a bit. Simply right click on the wireless
strength icon at the top and click Enable Wireless to make the tick go

Once you're done setting the router up, just do the same again to turn
it back on.
