    I am thinking about adding a wireless access point to my Netgear hub
    DS108 (8 ports) that is connected to an old Netgear RT311 (firmware
    v3.25) and then to a COM21 cable modem (Adelphia PowerLink [2000/128]).
    This is for home usage and only going to hook up to laptops (PowerBook
    [MacOS X] and notebooks [Windows and Linux]) and maybe expand to
    desktops later on. So, I will probably want five ports or so.

    I don't want to throw out my old cables and equipments since I still
    prefer good, old fashion cables. I am a newbie to wireless stuff, but
    had basic experience with networking. I also do need a good security
    since wireless is more vulnerable to the world.

    Are there anything I need to know about finding a wireless access
    point? Any advices are welcomed. Thank you in advance. :)
