If you want to be REALLY SECURE, you will want to employ MAC Address Filtering. This will stop ALL users on your network unless you add their machine's MAC address to your router/firewall settings.
Just my little two bits...

Yes, in most routers, they have the built in firewall that blocks viruses and stuff, but most of the protection from preventing 'leeches' (people that use your internet) is the encryption key. If you don't have any protection, anyone can use your internet and be on your network (and can sometimes do bad things to it). A common form of protection is a WEP encryption key, but with the right tools, this can be cracked.
The best way to have it would be to have a WAP encryption (so far uncrackable i think) and to have all the firewalls on as well as good virus protection on your computer.
WAP is not compatible with all wireless devices though.
