How do I do everything?

    Here's the current setup: WRT54G on the 3rd floor. WUSB54G receiving in the basement. I want to install a second WRT54G in the basement. The point of the second router is to be able to add my xbox to my wireless network, as well as use it as a repeater to increase the signal to the WUSB54G. My network knowledge is pretty much nonexistant. The questions I would like answered (if I am posting an often answered question, please provide a link):

    -Obviously, is this possible?
    -Which firmware should I use?
    -How do I install said firmware?
    -How do I set up a static IP?
    -Which security should I use (WEP or WPA i think?) and how do I implement it?

    I realize these are probably some very basic questions but please keep in mind that I really have no idea what I'm doing. I appreciate your replies. Thank you.

    Edit: sorry I forgot to include the versions for the firmware question. The second router (repeater) I haven't bought yet, so it'll probably have to be a v4 (WRT54GL). I'm not sure what the upstairs router version is, but it is definitely not a v5 as it is quite a few years old.
