The best ways to do it are a bit "techno" but they're not as hard as you think. The first step is to find the user manual for your router either the one that came with it or on-line on the manufacturer's website. Here are the things you should look into: SSID Broadcasting: You want to turn this off. SSID Broadcasting sends out the name of your wireless network for devices to find it. If it's turned off then you need to know the name of the network before being able to connect to it. (Turn it off change the name now only you know it). Encryption: You want to enable this using (in order of preference) either WPA2 WPA or WEP (Use the best one your devices ie laptop desktop videogame consoles can connect to). This is like adding a password to your wifi network. MAC Address Filtering: Every single wifi wireless device has what is called a MAC Address which is kind of like a name or ID. If you use MAC Address Filtering you can choose to either only allow specific devices to connect to your network or block specific ones. Gateway Address: Whatever address you used to sign onto the router (usually 192.168.1.1 by default) can and should be changed. Router Sign-on:Change the sign-on user name and password on your router so that only you can go back in and change settings if need be. Wireless GUI Management: This goes by different names but it comes down to only allowing router setting changes to be done through a wired/ethernet connection. Ideally you would take all of these steps but any of them will get you an extra layer of privacy and security.
