    I am replacing my current cable modem and wifi router with new ones. Does it matter in which order I replace them ? Thanks

    modem first. might need to get it activated first - call comcast etc. or DIY in web browser (however it does not always work).
    then router so it can connect fresh to internet with new modem.
