Hi!

You may follow this article to secure your wireless network.

Before following the article, open your browser first and type in 192.168.1.1 on your address bar and hit Enter. You will then be asked for a username and password. Default login (no username) for your router is admin. If it doesn't work, use the password you've used when you've ran the router setup CD.

Just reply if you have any questions.
