I have an old Linkysis wireless G router. I'm currently running 2 PC's on it, but 2 MAC's as well. We need to put security on the wireless but someone at the MAC Store said we couldn't use WEP... that it had to be something else to work with the MAC's. What is that, and will it also work with the PC's? Any special problems to look out for? Any assistance is appreciated. Thank you!

This knoledge base article from Apples site references the use of both WEP and WPA in Mac OS X 10.3 and later.  Mac OS X 10.3 is 2008.  Are any of your Apple's earlier than 2008?
