I'll probably have to post it up tonight as I'm at work and now in front of the computer with the router. Basically I'm looking for the most optimum setting for security and also a general idea on what features do what. If you've got anything off the top of your head that you can suggest please let me know.

OK, I found a bunch of information on D-Link's website including this cool emulator so I can play around with the router controls without actually having a router installed.

At a minimum turn of SSID broadcasting, change the default SSID to something else and change your passwords.

WEP helps, but is eaisly sniffed/hacked. But thats one more thing people have to do.

Thanks for the info. Fortunately I live in a 4 acres (sp?) of land so I'm not worried as much about the WAP portion of it because the distance from my AP and the street is pretty far and there's virtual no signal there unless they are using some kind of directional antenna or are on my property. So I'm mainly concerned about the Router part. Any suggestions?

Guess I should of read a little closer. So what do you need to know about the router portion? I've never messed with that model/brand.

Again I should of read a little closer again.

Since I've never messed with a D-Link I probably wont be much help unless you want general info.
