You can install security settings where someone can't use your wireless. Thats what I do. My next door neighbor has an open connection. Anyone could sit in front of his house and use it.

When you purchase the wireless set-up through either your ISP or at a computer store, the instructions will tell you how to set the settings.

I think most are under $50...just from looking in the circulars on Sundays. Here is a site that provides a number of reviews
