Hello @Irfan39 

No, you should be able to use the same network name and password with a new WiFi router. As long as you have it exactly the same, your existing client devices should connect to the new router automatically. Just make sure you take note of the exact network name and password, making sure all of the capitalization and any punctuation are exactly right.

When I change the internet provider do I need to change all cameras passwords for nest cam or I have to set up as new camera. 

@Irfan39 

If you are able to configure your new router/modem with the same SSID and password as your old router/modem, you won't have to update your cameras.  That's what we did when we got a new router/modem and all the cameras and doorbells worked without needing updating.  Depending on the camera or doorbell, updating the camera can be challenging.
