Default wireless network

hey, just got my motorola WR850G wireless router, i have it setup and its running great!, i have my SSID hidden, and wep set up. I have changed the SSID, i have changed my work group name to something other than workgroup, or MSHOME and i've used IP addresses other than the default, how can i check if its really secure, and is there anyway i can plug a computer into the WAN port and gain access to the private network to test port forwarding? or will that not work? thanks.

AMD Athlon 4000+ @ 2.4 GHz
4096 MB RAM
Dual Mirrored 500 GB HDDs
