I agree with voyager. I personally like the Netgear stuff, it's quality and it's super cheap. I picked up a G router/WAP for 25 bucks at Best Buy. And it's small.
I don't do any encryption. First of all, encrypted web traffic is already encrypted. When you go to your bank, or check anything private for that matter, the traffic is encrypted completely. Encryption is nice when you're a business transferring secret data in large office building. But hey, if you have homemade movies with you naked that you play over your WLAN a lot... by all means, you might want that signal scrambled!
For wireless security, I just stick to MAC filtering (only allowing my home machines), and I severely limit the DHCP address pool to just one more then the number of machines I have.
