    Greetings,

    Does enabling encryption/security affect the performance on either the linksys router or a client (if the client is a modern laptop)?

    Can anyone recommend which type of encryption to use?

    Encryption will always decrease the amount of throughput you recieve. However it is highly reccomended that you do enable encryption in order to keep your network secure and not allow your neibors from leeching the signal. I personally usa WPA-Personal with AES encryption.
