Have just got my broadband connection and am using the above wireless router to access the internet connected to the main pc with a network cable, and using a netgear usb wireless adaptor from a remote pc.
I have changed the ssid name on both pc's, turned off broadcast of ssid, but am confused about the security options which are set by default to disable.
WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)
WPA-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key)
should I enable any of these?
I also could not post to here without disabling my sygate firewall, and may have to do this again now. The router should have a hardware firewall? Sygate has already detected 2 incoming packets of info which I blocked.
I installed the freedom firewall that was linked to by the router setup software but it conflicted with avg so I used system restore to get rid of it, as the uninstaller could not uninstall it.
All readups say you should use WEP at 128, disable SSID broadcast which you have done and then install a firewall on each PC/laptop. I run Zone Alarm 4.5 on each (not 5 as this gives problems) Leave the router's own firewall to allow nothing in but all out. I have run sometime like this with no problems at all. Hope this is some help.
