go to internet explorer and put 192.168.1.1 in your address bar then enter the username and password (by default they both will be ADMIN). Then go to the WIRELESS tab then SECUIRTY tab and choose the level of encryption you want to use (XP SP3 or VISTA you will want to use WPA 2)

See also these two links:

Linksys FAQ (w/scrrenshots)

Linksys Glossary

If you look to the right in blue in any tab that you are in & click on the word More... you will be taken to a help page which explains in greater detail what the settings mean.
