However, there is another aspect of security where wireless internet is concerned, security in relation to the outside world. You need to set up a wireless access password on your router to stop unauthorised use. You can do this in your router's setup page in your web-browser. It will stop someone in range using your wireless connection at your expense or using it to download illegal stuff which would obviously be traceable back to the router in your house.
You will, of course, need to enter the same password in your wireless connection software or it won't be able to connect. The password is not required by anyone who has a wired connection to the router.
