Swap controller

Noob here (to zigbee2mqtt). I’ve got a CC2531 up and running just fine and am starting to add more devices to it, but the signal range isn’t great. I do have a router that helps the situation, but I’d still like to improve that by getting a CC2531 with better Antennae.
When I do, can I just swap the old and new usb sticks over? Will all the devices still be paired with the network, or is the network tied to the USB stick HW (in which case I’d have to re-pair everything)?

If you replace one CC2531 with another CC2531, you don’t have to re-pair
