You can go into the router and under the security tab you have the option to use WEP or WPA to encrypt a passphrase or password for the router. It's adviseable to write this passphrase down and keep it in a safe place so you don't lose it. WPA would be the better method to encrypt.
To get into the router you need to open your browser and in the address bar type in the default address of your router and a user name and password box will open into which you can put the defrault user name and password that came with your router.

Find or Change Your Internet Security Passphrase


1)Open the web browser that you use: Firefox,Google Chrome,IE,or Opera and type in the IP address for your router,and press the Enter key.
http://www.routeripaddress.com/ < Router ip addresses can be found here

2)A window will open and then type in your routers default username and password,and press the Enter key again

http://www.routerpasswords.com/ < Router usernames and passwords found here
***** Username and Password may also be located on the side or bottom of your router *****

3)Navigate to the Wireless Security\Network Security Settings Tab and open to locate or change your WEP or WPA Security Passphrase.
Use WPA because it provides better security.

4)Write this Security Passphrase down and put it in a safe place to access when needed.
