I'm using Orbi RBR50, router with two satellites and we are changing our internet provider, do I have to do a "New Setup" once I have the new provider? I will be using same modem though.

Thanks a lot.

Just power OFF the modem when you change ISPs for 1 minute then back on.

Thoretically no.  I would recommend it however. It might work great once the new ISP provisions your modem but it might have issues. Just take a backup of your configuration so you can restore it once you've got the new setup provisioned.

... and while you are doing that, also turn off the Orbit router and then turn that back on when the modem is up and connected.
