When I access my wireless router with my laptop, it says I am connecting to an unsecure network. How do I make this secure?

Thanks.

Set up WEP or WPA security within the router settings.

If you want it more secure, definitely choose WPA over WEP. If you want even more security, enable MAC Address filtering, and only allow computers you choose. If you decide to do this, and need help, what router are you using?
