I have an old Linksys Wireless G router. It only has WEP security. I want to buy a new router with WPA security. IF i buy a new router do I also have to replace the wireless cards in my computers to be able to get WPA security?

Sometimes, a simple firmware update will let you use WPA. It's not until WPA2 that you will have to start to replace hardware. What model of Linksys router do you have?

The link above will take you to the download page for your router. In the version box, select version 2 or which ever version you have. Download the newest firmware and apply it. This router is capable of WPA so you should be good to go after you update the firmware.
