Reading the configuration guide for the Wireless router is the 1st step.

Now, how does he plan to limit it to his customers?  What if I drive up, or walk by, and sit outside and use it?

you can use wpa2 with shared key, so ppl who get in, must have the key, you can change the key every time,
or if the computers dont change (i.e. nobody brings their own compter) you can read the mac address of every computer (start-> run-> cmd. ipconfig /all) and set it in the router, so every body who wants to get in must know the key and have a valid mac address.
