You need to determine your gateway IP address. Click on your network status to determine that. It will most likely be 192.168.1.1. You can open a web browser and go to http://192.168.1.1 to get to your router login page. Try admin for your username and leave the password blank.
That should bring you the interface where you can change the wireless security settings to "enabled" and set your password. Let me know if this works for you!
Your ex may have set a different password for the router, and you may have to do a factory "reset" on the router.

It's no problem all you need to do is access the administration page of the wireless router and setup security. Depending on what type of device you have there are several options. The most basic security is fine and you will need to create a passcode so that the PC's you want to access then internet will work. Then when security is setup you type the access codes in your PCs and you are good to go. I know this is very generic but I don't know which router you have. I can be more specific if you need, just let me know. Usually you access the admin page by the IP address of the router entered in Internet browser then it will ask for user and pass. ( if I know the model I might be able to tell you that as well)
Hope this starts the process for you, just send me comments if you need specifics

You might want to do a hard reset then do all the settings from scratch so you can set a system pass and a wifi pass for the network. use the 128 bit WEP setting.

When a router resets, it goes back to the state when it was new — all information that was entered by hand is lost! Examples are critical things you need to get online, such as ISP username, ISP password, IP addresses, security keys, and ports and services that were opened. It all needs to be re-entered.
So, have your ISP information before resetting the router.
Naturally, if you moved to a new city, or if you bought a used router, the old information in the router may not be of use to you. Contact your ISP if you can't connect any computer directly to the Internet. Then, if there is a connection problem when the router is added, see No Internet Access Through the Router
Reset for most routers with a reset button on the rear panel
Write down configuration information such as IP addresses, security keys, opened ports and services, etc., that you modified. (The default username is admin and the password is either password or 1234. Try these before resetting the router.)
