Is it your own WIFI? If so, increase the level of security. WPA2 should be used as a encryption standard.

But there are flaws in WPA2 to. If you use TKIP there is a possibility that someone injects arp packets to the network. If you can you should use AES instead of TKIP. But this is by implementation so you could very well be sitting with hardware that has to be changed.

You can read about the attack here if you like:
