    Even if the password and SSID are the same it will be seen as a new network and will need to be authenticated with the password. I know I have tried exactly to do this.

    Assuming you change the default SSID (Wi-Fi name) and password to what the one from the old router, I don't see why your devices wouldn't connect automatically. Just make sure you use the same password encryption settings (like WPA2).

    They'll probably issue a new router password.
