    That is a really vague question. I am not even sure how to answer it. Are you concerned about wireless security, Internet security or both? What are your actual concerns? Please be detailed.

    One good approach it to publish what you would like to do and then we can work with that. Otherwise it is just a huge guessing game.

    Most wireless devices that you purchase now will have the most secure encryption available. So that should not be an issue. I am not sure why you feel NetGear has the most range as that is very dependent on your specific situation.

    You also have to be concerned about Internet issues, actually I am more concerned about that than any wireless issue.

    I typically tell clients to use a very high quality wired router and firewall combination. Then run access points instead of wireless routers, as they have more features and do not have to be located where the Internet access into the facility is.

    No security problems here...
    Just be sure to use WPA-AES or TKIP on any of the routers and you should be ok.
