There is no point in doing this before you are told to do so, in fact trying it could cause problems.

Re: Configure router

Just want to change the wi-fi SSID, so I can change all my devices ahead of time ...

 

There is always the reset button!

@BillyP that shouldnt be a problem. Just connect to the new router using a wired (ethernet) connection with the router disconnected from the phone line (or ONT if you are FTTP). Then go to 192.168.1.254 using a browser. You will need the router admin password ( on the back of the router ) to make any changes. Make sure to save any changes.
