    Got a hand me down WRT54G V.2. The router mostl likley has never been flashed at all. But I will want to look I guess.

    This will be a first time install for me and my PC. I'm not helpless as I build my own PC's and have flashed my motherboard and such. I have never had the need to network until now so I'm new to it.

    Being an older router, is the OE supplied software disc good enough or is there an better version?

    Should I flash her up the the most current Linksys firmware?

    My application will be very simple. The router will be on a XP Home PC with Comcast cable through a Motorola SB5100 cable modem, networked to my new HP Vista Premium Laptop with an internal Intel Pro 3945 ABG adapter.

    I will want security as I have had a Dell laptop here with the same Intel adapter inside and connected to three neighbors internet without trying or knowing what I was doing. If I can see them they can see me, right!

    What would you experianced wireless guys do upon recieving a used router of this kind before using it.
