What is the most secure form of wireless security that I can apply from my Belkin 54g router? I want to protect my data on my network as well as make sure no one else is able to access my line.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Remove your SSID from broadcast is one of the way…

Don’t forget to put password for your wireless internet too

    If you are security conscious and using wireless networking the consider these steps: 1. Do not broadcast SSID (also mentioed above by Jinteik) 2. Use MAC address filtering to permit only your machines network interface cards on the network. 3. Use the strongest encryption you can that all your devices can support. WPA is better than WEP. 4. Use strong password. A password of password or letmein is not all that ;)

    "Don't bother removing your SSID from broadcasts - that won't stop anyone who really wants to from finding your router, and it does nothing to stop them from connecting to it." - Quite, but it's a deterrent and another level of complexity. WPA2 / AES - totally agree and might have mentioned that. MAC filtering NOT recommended? Why not? It's another layer for a hacker to get past. Passwords - totally agree and might have mentioned that too.
