My Z6k is the only wireless device I use at home, currently.  If I want to protect my network, is there any way to upgrade the Z to use WPA, or stronger security measures?

I use a Linksys WRT54G as my router.  I have two other routers, plus I can set up a Linux box if I need to segment my LAN for more security, but I want to be able to use VNC etc to/from my Z..

I'm not a security guru, so I feel a little exposed with my wireless on.  I turned the signal strength down to 12.5% to lower the exposure, but I still don't feel 100% safe. (Satori firmware)

WPA supplicant exists for linux, there are a few posts here on OESF for it.

Alternatively, as a quick hack, put your access point on a separate LAN and use a VPN, or use SSH to tunnel everything.
