Just to update:
I have tried all different combinations of security. WEP, WPA, different keys, different encryption depth, etc.
My temporary fix to stop leechers is to restrict the connection to only my 2 computer's MAC addresses. So I am still susceptible to flooding and people reading my packets I guess (not sure).
My eMule works fine and my connection is not visibly laboured, but I don't notice that download progress can sometimes be a bit "jolty," and it wasn't before. I have 1 machine hardwired and this one wirelessly connected and my housemate and I are sharing the connection with no problems.
I have a Playstation Portable on the way (one of the reasons for getting WiFi) and I don't know whether this will work using the MAC address restriction OR with WEP or WPA. If anyone has any info on this that would be good too.
*edit* PSP does have a MAC address and ONLY supports WEP encryption. So I will want to use WEP even though it is less secure.
But the long and the short of it is I would like to be able to use encryption with no decrease in efficiency !
