I have a dlink wbr 2310 router and i keep on getting hit offline on my xbox 360 because my parents set my router on open connection so anyone close enough to pick it up can use it and I'm trying to close the connection so they would have to know my password to use it

Hi davlanco, and welcome to TSG.

Have you tried explaining the situation to your parents and asked them to add encryption to the router's wireless configuration? You might also point out to them that leaving the connection unprotected could give them legal problems if someone used the connection for downloading copyrighted music and movies and even bigger problems for downloading kiddie porn.
