At the very least you should use the Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) protocol (its fare more secure than WEP). However, To use WPA, your router and Neiwork cards must support it. Windows XP Service Pack 2 installs the WPA client. SP1 machines can be updated to support WPA by installing the Windows WPA client with the Wireless Update Rollup Package — see this page for more details. Another encryption option is to use IPsec, if your wireless router supports it.

Agree with KCTS, WAP is better than WEP so try to setup that security. And also, do not set broadcast SSID so no one could see your wireless floating around.
