    I have never set up a wireless network before. I am moving to a new place and want to set up a network there. I live at home right now with my parents until sept 1st, so I use their linksys network which has no security (ie. password etc). I have an airport extreme basestation and an iMac g4 which will act as the basis of my network. Here is my question, what will my DS and Xbox 360 do to connect to the network if I set it up with a password? Will my 360 and DS work with no setup or problems as they do here at my parents? I know this is probably a stupid question, but I just wanted to get some help because I am kind of nervous about setting up a network for the first time, any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you!

    If it is a WEP password, you can enter it into the DS's WiFi settings no problem.

    If it is a WPA password, the DS won't be able to use the network.
