    Trusty old MN_700 802.11 b/g wireless router is working fine with my 3 WinXP
    laptops but without any encryption.
    I will now like to add WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryption. Can I do this without
    resetting and starting from scratch? Or should I remove everything and start
    fresh?
    The router is connected to a cable-modem and (assuming) a non-static IP.
    Cable company won't help as they want me to rent a router from them.

    This is too old to support WPA2, but you should be able to configure WPA
    using the "Base Station Management Tool."
