Wireless router/cable modem question

My current residence has cable internet service.
I purchased a linksys wireless router, and set up my own little home network.

I have to move to a different location for a month or so.
The new location has cable internet service.
If I plug my router into the new cable service, what happens...?

Does my network name, WEP key, etc all remain intact?
Does the router recognize the new input, and ask me to set up a new network?

Thanks in advance for clearing this up!
I want to know what to expect when I move.

    All your settings will remain, and it will "see" the new connection.

    You'll be using the cable co's modem? If so, then yeah, you should be all set.

    I'm sure you'll "forget" to mention the router to the cable company - as some actually want to charge you more if you're wireless or by # of PCs attached.
