I have two computers that connect to the internet.  In the interest of
wanting more security, just purchased the Belkin Wireless Pre-N router,
Notebook card, and Desktop card.  I really want to enable the WPA security,
but I also have a Linksys Wireless-G Print Server that both machines access
and it only supports WEP.  I checked and there is no firmware update and in
looking around, I can't seem to find any brand of Print Server that does
support WPA.  If I configure the Belkin equipment for WPA, will they still be
able to communicate to the Print Server if I don't apply security to that one
device?  Or will the Print Server also need to have the same security as the
others in order to communicate with the router?
