For starters you want to set up WPA or WPA2 with a password. There are other more complicated ways to set up security but its not worth the pain. This is very dependent on the kind of device you have, Belkin, Lincsys, etc... They all configure differently. I would also change your password on a regular basis, once every 2 or 3 months.
