Aaron is correct in that WEP is all you can use to connect your Newton. Your double-nat solution still means the Newton and anything else in WEP are insecure. "most people aren't going to make any errort_at all_ to crack wifi", well that depends where you live I suppose.
Most routers bought in the last few years will allow you to run two wifi networks simultaneously from the one router. You can configure each wifi network's settings (a,b,g,n WPA, WEP , nothing, etc) separately and choose whether or not the two networks can talk to each other.
