securing a wireless network?

I put a wireless router in my apartment and want to know how to secure it so only i can use it.

i have been going through the properties and shit looking for an option, but i cant find it. Does anyone know how? I think some of my neighbors are using it and i think thats the reason the netflix on my xbox is running so slow

If you post your address, I'll come by and secure it... Of course you won't be able to use it either
