    Check this out, particularly half way down the page, where it has 'configure the router' ......

    Then no-one without the password will be able to connect

    Also, use WPA2 as a minimum encryption as WEP (and even WPA) can be cracked by freely available software, and a clued-up leecher nowadays....
