    generally wireless is very good for surfing the net - even if it does lose the connection it'll rejoin before you notice.

    As far as security goes for wireless - it isn't secure, sure you can make it marginally harder for somebody to get access but its not secure.

    If you want a secure wireless network you'll need stuff like radius servers, ip security, mac address etc. the best option is to assume it isn't secure and make sure that your pc's on your network are secure

    yeah about 20 - 30 feet in the real world, and AP will cover the average house - single story.

    A double story house has problems due to the way the signal is transmitted from the AP - to maximise output very little signal is sent up since thats a waste of signal, it is usually sent out horizontally
