Hi all,

I'm looking at buying a second hand PPC probably an IPAQ 5450 or 5500.  Now these guys only run on 802.11b so I presume that they won't handle WPA-PSIK encryption which I use to connect my laptop at home.  Am I assuming correctly so far?

If yes, then can I somehow set up my router (Netgear DG834g) to run WEP on the 802.11b and WPA on the 802.11g bands respectively? 

Or is the only solution to run my wireless network on WEP only?

Thanks for anyone in the know that can help.

I haven't used that router, but im guessing that when you go to set it up, it will only allow you to choose 1 option.
