USR has a nice easy-peasy tutorial here:


Just select the defaults of WPA2 and WPA (PSK), and TKIP & AES.

Choose a good passphrase mixing letters and numbers: "Hey it's sn0w1ng 
Macintoshes outside!"

Voila' all done. 

Now on each of your macs and pcs tell them to forget the connection and 
re-establish it, entering the passphrase as above.

Your old OS 9 machines may work, but 8 and 7 probably not. Use a wired 
connection for those. It means you need to be within about 100 meters (cable 
run) of the router. Unless your name is Trump, this is a limitation you're 
unlikely to reach in the typical dwelling :-)
