I don't see what a noisy neighbor has to do with securing your network.  Care to explain?

I am assuming you are using a router, right?  Make sure you use a looong password encrypted with WPA2 AES.

Make sure if you have a guest network have that password protected as well, or better yet, turn it off.  Don't make the password anything simple as others have said, nothing that a neighbor can guess due to your own habits.

I'm not familiar with your router, does it have ability to be a public hotspot?  If yes, disable it.
