I am setting up a home network. I've got five Unleashed R510 AP's. Four of them are wired with ethernet. One is wireless mesh. The four wired AP's are connected to the Comcast modem/router through a PoE switch. If I later replace my Comcast modem/router, will I need to reconfigure/setup my AP's again? 

My Comcast modem/router is NOT set to bridge mode. There are other devices (surveillance system) connected to it that it is performing routing functions for.

This is my first time working with Unleashed Ruckus AP's. Is the WiFi routing performed by the Master AP or is it still performed by my Comcast modem/router?

Thanks for any help you can provide!

I only wish it was my house! This is for a client. 
My own home is covered entirely by a single Comcast modem/router/AP in my basement!

Yeah you don’t need to change anything. As long as you have internet or LAN in the Ethernet cables
