Help with understanding WPA-PSK set-up

  Giggle n' Bits 00:05 20 Oct 2006

ok using a Netgear DG834PN after seeing a recent post with excellent postings from Strawballs and the other guys I have decided to use the WPA-PSK option now my netgear according to the Pdf manual shows for setting up this key you enter the Passphrase, so first Q is, is this passphrase something I myself make up unique ?

Then it shows boxes for Key 1, 2, 3 & 4 so Q.2 is do I create a set of numbers for these 4 boxes (counting the example in a box in the pdf doc is 10 letters & numbers mixed.

Q.3 Also take it 128bit is better than 64bit

Q.4 Authentication type is this best on Automatic?

Fianlly As a link on other post earlier went to a another link and it was suggested to disable SSID, is this wise.

Oh, hate to ask apparently my new BB ISP is nildram they say my IP address is Dynamic and I do not type anything in what ever that means. I saw someone a while back set up a netgear router and they typed a number address into the address bar.

Much appreciated for help to complete my details so I can get the router on while hopefully no one is around.
