    What are you looking to do - Encrypt specific files? The whole computer? Email?

    Not true, The key to encryption is it's ability to randomize its keys. Even if you program in thousands of keys you'll never know which one was used in the cypher.

    Depends on the model. I have a Linksys E3000 series router, and I am currently using WPA2/AES for the encryption. Which as it stands now hasn't been cracked. TKIP has known security flaws. But even utilizing WPA will make it more trouble than it's worth to attempt to break in. If you tell me what model you have I'll find you some step by step instructions in locking it down, if need be I'll write out the steps.

    I've also used TruCrypt to create an encrypted container to dump files and folders into it. Could also use TruCrypt to encrypt the entire hard drive if you'd like. The only draw back is if your hard drive or partition table ever takes a shit, you'll most likely never get any data back.
    Is there a way to create a 4096-bit or higher GPG key using windows? The software I'm currently using for windows will only allow 2048 or 3072-bit max (at least with the GUI... I haven't really messed with the CLI for GPG).

    Yep, PGP will allow you to create a 4096-Bit key. At least the version I am currently using. If you still have the login information I gave you I'll put it on my FTP server and you can download it. It's a little buggy installing on Windows 7, but Windows XP on down it works flawlessly.

    I was thinking of posting a thread asking who wanted to trade off gpg/pgp public keys. Look at the Linux Security Cookbook for some good basic info. I only use GPG for file encryption and dm_crypt for disk encryption.

    That would be great! GPG4Win doesn't seem to be cuttin' it for me.
