  2. Coration–
    Yes. It is always recommended that you run the strongest encryption your equipment is capable of translating (currently WPA2).
    Wireless gear will “default” to the lowest level of the equipment available– meaning, if you have an older WEP-only device, all your other devices will drop down and use WEP too. (This is to enable communication.)
    Sometimes, you can improve your older devices by updating the firmware. Other times it’s best just to replace it. In this day and age, WEP is useless.
