With the supplied superhub I don't think there is any setting up to do, just switch everything off connect up and then plug in the hub first leave to settle then turn on the PC's and the wireless will already be setup with encryption, the key for that will be on the bottom of the hub.

"do you think I will have to redo my home network again to reconise all my 7 pcs"

Changing routers shouldn't have any effect on your existing network setup.
