You probably have wireless B cards, not G. If you bought the panels more than 3 years ago, that is almost certainly the case. You need the G card to get WPA. They are not that terribly expensive, and fairly easy to upgrade. You need:
Model #: NXA-WC80211G/CF
Part #: FG2255-07

Would it also be possible to exchange the wireless b/g card with a b/g/n card? (Or wouldn't that be supported by the software?)

I will second the "Easy to upgrade" statement and I will also add that the upgrade improves the wireless range and reliability of the touch panels. (IMHO)

can you tell me the exact upgrade process for a newer G-Card? I mean what firmware must be installed before install the card?

This latest firmware will support the older Hermes II "b" card (802.11b - only supports WEP encryption) and the latest Marvell "bg" card.
The firmware will detect which card is installed at bootup and enable/disable the appropriate capabilities in the setup pages.
The Hermes I card (also a "b" card) is no longer supported. There was a very limited number of early panels that were delivered with this card.
You can identify the different cards this way:
Hermes I: has 1 led.
Hermes II: has 2 leds
Marvell: has 0 leds.
