This can be done in the WebGUI (Web Graphical User Interface) of your router. Find the documentation for your router, either the paper manual that came with it, a cd that came with it, or online at the manufactuers website. And lookup how to enable WEP or WPA (Wired Equivalent Privacy or (WiFi Protected Access). WPA2-PSK is the highest level of security available.
WPA-PSK is also pretty high, but has been cracked. WEP is almost useless, and can be cracked in minutes by amateurs.

Type 192.168.1.1 into a browser window to open the router config page.

Default login is:
username - admin
password - admin

These need to be changed.

For security select WPA-PSK or WPA2-PSK both of which are more secure than WEP, and for security you can select automatic, TKIP or AES, AES being the better option and a passphrase between 8 and 63 characters long. You will need to enter the MAC address of each computer and Privilege set to 'Allow
