In Unity Pro Quantum do i need to update the Ethernet network link configuration after a processor substitution or a module substitution

Below are two cases when the Ethernet network logical links configured in the project have to be associated to a physical links in the configurator editor.   

1) Case of built-in ethernet processors
Only the 140 CPU 65150 and 140 CPU 65160 have a built-in ethernet processors, if one processor is substitued by the other you don't have to do anything because they use the same "Model Family " (TCP/IP 10/100 Extended Connection).

2)Case of ethernet modules
In the ethernet configuration link, the "Model Family" used by the ethernet modules are :
-"TCP/IP 10/100 Regular Connection" for 140 NOE 77101\77111 and 140 NWM 100 00
-"TCP/IP 10/100 Factory Cast" for the 140 NOE 77100
-"TCP/IP 10/100" for the 140 NOE 77100

If you replace one module by another which not belong to the same "Model family" the association between the network link and the physical module disappears.
To establish again the association :
-Select the new "Model Family",
-Type again the parameters (IP Config, IO Scanning, etc),
- Establish again the association between the network link and the physical module
