  1. Here is an article about WiFi WEP which will enable you to place a 128bit encryption on your WiFi. Also you can choose NOT to broadcast your SSID, which is also helpful.

  2. Things you need to enable:

    Encryption: WPA is better, much better infact, than WEP. Either is better than none.
    Router Password: Change it from the default
    Mac filtering: Each network hardware has a unique mac id, you can set your router to just allow your hardware onto the network.
  3. Oh, and stop the router from handing out IP addresses / DNS server adresses. Enter them for each PC manually.
