If you go into the router's Setup pages (type 192.168.1.1 into your web browser) and select "Wireless > Wireless Security", you may have a page like this - click here

Ideally, as Danoh suggests, you want to use WPA so set it up as per the screenshot and enter your encryption key (Passphrase) of between 8 and 63 characters.

If you need to use WEP, the key would be 10 hexadecimal characters for 64-bit encryption or 26 hex characters for 128-bit encryption. The hexadecimal characters are "0" to "9" and "a" to "f".
