Belkin Wireless Network Security

I have set up a wireless network at home for 2 desktops and 1 laptop, how do I secure it so noone else can access it? There are 3 wireless networks in my AP list, the other 2 aren't mind and therefore are locked but mine is unlocked. I've had a little play around with the settings but can't find anything.

You need to enable "encryption" in your router's wireless settings. The two main types are WEP and WPA encryption, of which WPA is the more secure.

if your computers are wpa-psk capable use it, also enable mac address filtering so only 'known' computers can join your net, and finally hide your SSID. You can identify your known computers in the dhcp client list. All can be done easily from your belkin setup page
