If I replace my old Airport Extreme with the new model, will I have to reinitialize all of my Belkin WeMo Switches, or will the change be transparent?

    This depends on what you name you 2.4GHz and 5GHz networks. The WeMo switches can only communicate via 2.4GHz. So your 2.4GHz network should be the same as your current network. Also keep the password the same and the name of your AirPort Extreme the same. i.e. Sam's AirPort Extreme needs to be named the same again.
    I ran into this issue when I changed my base stations name and had to reset all my wifi light bulbs.
