Use a password, don't broadcast your SSID, and use WPA if you have it, WEP otherwise.
Many routers can be set up to only allow certain MAC addresses to connect. Enter the ones from your systems, then no one else will be able to connect (unless they are able to brute-force search through all possible MAC addresses).
