I plan to get a router that supports guest wireless for the ability to connect potentially infected/untrusted PCs to the net without risking the security of my own PCs.

I could use an upgrade however I'm actually saving up for some more important upgrades. I just have a complex password and I have to enter on the device while they aren't looking and I change it every week, Just like My SSID. I am still leaving it at Future Trance 61 for budman to find.... he still has not come to me to tell me he found it, LOL

I don't currently but I may consider changing the WiFi password and switching people who use the internet over to the guest because people with iPhones etc see my Apple TV popup in there device for Airplay and I think, the guest network should isolate that. Nearly everyone who visits friends and family have WiFi access
