I have a wireless router - Linksys WRTP54G. I know I should secure my wireless network but I'm really unsure of how to do this. From the Slimserver Wiki I understand that I should use WPA security rather than WEP.

Has anyone come across some easy to understand instructions for adding WPA security? I'm runnning XP Windows. Thanks.

I have the same router, go to the Linksys web site, they have a down loadable advisor, which can secure your network easily. Once secured you will need to add in your SB's to the network, again this is easy using the advisor. Reconfigure your SB's with the encryption key that the advisor gives you, and then your secure.
