A Pin...this means that when you first connect you are sent to a special site, and you have to enter a pin on a web page? Or you have to have a special app to enter it?
Disable it, and use WPA security with a good (decent length, not dictionary based) pass phrase. Is the wire to your modem the insecure piece? Or the Wi-Fi that is accessible to someone in the adjacent street?
Unless your circumstances are odd, the wire to your modem is as secure as the interior of your home, while the wi-fi need to be well locked down. WPA2 with a good passphrase is as good as it gets. Well, using actual wires is faster, more secure and more reliable. But WPA or WPA2 is fairly good (WEP is fairly useless, it has been thoroughly cracked now and can be hacked with the right toolkit in a minute or two).
