You could always do what I did. I simply plugged our old Airport Base
Station into our new wifi/router, and connect my Newton, the girls'
DSs and old Dell through that, and use the wifi/router for the rest.
That way there are no problems, and I get to use full security for the
rest of the computers. For my ABS, I have it set to only allow the MAC
addresses for the items that need it, turned off SSID broadcasting,
and turned on WEP. That's the best I could do. It is also below the
main router, with its own dynamic IP address. I think it's as secure
as it could be, and better, the rest of the network isn't compromised.
It's WPA2 AIS or whatever it's called.
