Router question


Question

todd_2005

My router is about 4 years old and I was wondering if it would be a good idea to get a new one or not. The one I have now is a Belkin. Does a newer one offer better security and speed? I have heard that Linksys is pretty good, any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

I heard wireless was less secure, any truth to that?

I guess it is about as secure as you make it. there are some guides around neowin.

Basic stuff, enable the firewall, use wpa or wpa2. do not use wep.

some people say the can break wep in 10 minutes.
