Security with wireless

Hi guys
My new router Voyager 2091 arrived yesterday, and as such I set up the router to work with an ethernet connection to my PC.
However, now I need to make it work wireless.  I want to make sure none of my neighbours can get into my connection... so am I right in saying that I need to make the security of the router goto WPA instead of WEP?  Is that right or am I am talking balls...
If I am right.. does anyone know how to do this?
Thanks Cheesy

I understand that the 2091 does support WPA although I have no direct experience of setting it up.
A quick google gave this link http://www.pcrepair4glasgow.co.uk/install_2091_page5.htm which you should find useful. Read the section on 'securing your network', it describes how to set up the various options , including WPA

It was very easy and I set up my wireless connection with WPA in no time!
Good luck! Wink

Re: Security with wireless

mattdanielc - you're quite right - your router comes preset with WEP security, and you ought to change it to WPA.
