Hi ketsukei15, and welcome to TSG.

You should be able to find a PDF file of your router's user manual here:

http://en-us-support.belkin.com/app/...d/166/search/1

It will have information on configuring the router to use an encrypted wireless connection. This should prevent anyone that does not know your wireless key from using your connection. You should use WPA-PSK encryption with a not easily guessed key if your computers support it , instead of WEP. It is best to use a wired connection to the router when editing wireless settings on it.
