Is there a simple way to set up a firewall for a wireless connection? I am unsure how exactly to go about it, but I know that my router has the firewall connection hardwired into it. Thanks.

Yes, your router has a firewall that blocks unauthorized incoming packets. To protect your computer(s) fully you should also install a software firewall on your machine to block or be aware of unauthorized outgoing packets. Its as simple as installing the program. There are a number of free ones detailed here. Look for Free Personal Firewalls on that page.
