How do I Secure My ASUS Router

Hello, I need help with my Asus router, I recently noticed a dip in speed while working on something, when I checked the number of devices connected, it showed around 17 while I only connect 3 of my devices. I need to change the password and make it strong. Can anyone suggest me any steps to do so and How can I make my router safe against such intruders?
