modify a Linksys befw11s4 v4 router to allow for WPA security

A client has the befw11s4 router but it does not offer the option of WPA, only WEP.

The firmware is from April 2003.

What do I need to do to enable WPA setup?

Seems like you can just upgrade to latest firmware. The release notes say they added WPA support in Oct of 2003.

What is the procedure?

I download the new firmware.

How do I save the current configuration? How do I load the firmware? What do I do to restore the configuration?
