Default protecting my wireless connection?

I have a Linksys WRTS4G v 5 and it sends out a wireless signal.
In short, I think other computers around may be using my wireless connection to use Limewire (which I even hate on my own computer, let alone someone else using my connection to download crappy music).

Is there a way I could password protect my connection, and if so, how?

Thank you.

Open up the program, and set a security key.

Go into the router and look for Firewall Settings. You should be able to disable the broadcasting and put a password.

How would I go about into my router settings to look for Firewall Settings?

Open up your internet browser. Type in "192.168.0.1" in the address box and it should come right up.

Procedure as follows

(a) Open up web broswer and type this 192.168.1.1

(b) You will see a login window. Leave USER NAME BLANK and use admin (or ADMIN) as the password.

(c) When you are in the firmware click WIRELESS then WIRELESS SECURITY.

(d) Select WPA SHARED KEY, type in a keyphrase of your choice. The shared keyphrase must be between 8 and 64 characters (the more the better)

(e) Make a note of the keyphrase as you will need to enter this for any devices that user the local wireless net.

(f) If you feel brave, consider flash upgrading the firmware. Here is the most current version of firmware for this model (found under ADMINISTRATION->FIRMWARE UPGRADE)

If 192.168.1.1 doesn't work, then open up the command prompt (start>run>cmd) and type in ipconfig/all and use the numbers found corresponding with the 'default gateway' and BAM! Router IP.

If you cannot get into the router RVideo's way, then try to use both the username AND password as admin.
