This reconfiguration issues line he is giving you is essentially hokum.
If the new location has WPS it can be configured with a pushbutton. If not it's no more difficult to manually enter a different wireless encryption key than it is on a first time setup.
I seriously think this guy planned to sell it himself. He's sure going out of his way to make you believe it is worthless. I mean, what does he care? It's yours. If you want it and it really is worthless why does he care and why did he take it in the first place?
. Based upon my previous success in setting up wireless equipment the statements from this technician did not make any sense. Realizing that I'm never too old to learn and to give the tech the benefit of doubt I posted this thread hoping some feedback would verify my thoughts. I do not want to criticize the technician but it appears that he has never attempted to set up a wireless connection manually. His advice surely had me guessing. You may be correct HarleyD
