After all the talk about it again in a recent thread I would like to know the best way to run my WiFi local network to minimize security issues and protect my data. While I really doubt there are people waiting for my data, off the start is the best time to put the right practices in motion.

I also figure this can server as a thread for referencing later down the line when others who aren't very security minded/educated ask questions.

In my case, I'm networking PC's, PDA's (some with WEP only), and Mac's. Most are wired, other than the laptops and PDA's. So how about those of you who know network security giving someone like me a hand by helping me to configure my network to keep my data safe, along with my passwords.
