    I have a Belkin wireless router and an extender. I have set up security
    on the router. Do I have to set up security separately on the extender
    or will it pick up the settings from the router?

    Presumably if the extender could pick up the security settings then so
    could any passing hacker ...

    If it's using WEP then forget it, anyone can get in and use your connection.
    It's useless unless it can use WPA2 to link to the main router.
