I have a Belkin N Wireless Modem Router and the security light is not on on the router. Do I need this to work or does Nortons work fine?

Yes, comms between your router and PC(s) is un-encrypted.

I mean, yes you need it to be encrypted, Norton will be doing its job but it won't see the traffic until it gets to your machine via the un-encrypted link. Security in terms of anti-virus/spyware etc is not quite the same thing as wireless security.
