Here's what you may want to consider doing to keep your sanity:
1.) LABEL all your data cables - Note on the labels (masking tape would work) where that end of the cable is plugged in. (Two labels per cable - one at each end)
2.) Jot down any special settings you've made on your router to accommodate requirements of camers, printers, etc. that may need special IP settings
3.)TAKE A PICTURE of each device after you've labeled the wires - a picture is always worth a thousand words of documentation)
4.) When you are installing your new EERO, pretty much the cables will be connected to the same places. The cable plugging into your Trend router supplying the internet will plug in to the EERO (or other router-brands) in a similar port. My router, that port is colored yellow.
The EERO is a good purchase - they should plug & play with no problems.
MY personal policy - I set my IP ranges to the 10.x.x.x range simply to get it off the 192.168.x.x or 172.x.x.x ranges. There should be no problems as those IP ranges are not "routable", but people don't typically use the 10.x.x.x range. Just a little extra precaution.
