AX6000 pairing devices

I am planning to replace an existing router with the AX6000 and (2) RBX 853 Satellites. My WIFI devices include thermostats and sprinkler controls. For linking/pairing to the network, can I change the network name of the AX6000 to the current network name of the old router and use its password?

Re: AX6000 pairing devices

That technique works for MOST devices... but there are probably some out there that you will have to re-pair.  Example, some of my Alexa's had to be manually reset when I changed to the AX6000
