I bought a new Linsys router, what should I do to make my wifi secure so that my neighbours would not be able to use my Internet? I head hacking WEP is quite easy.

Well, yes, hacking WEP is not very complicated. We write about this on Maxi-Pedia in the IT&IS section. That is why you should enable WPA or WPA-PSK on your router instead of WEP.

How to make your wifi secure is a long story, so I suggest you look at the following links where they explain it quite well:
