Each router manufacturer has different tools to prevent unwanted user from accessing you router. However the two best practices that you can do are universal features across all modern routers. I first suggest enabling WEP encryption on the router itself. The other thing that I would recommend is turning off the broadcasting of your SSID. That way only you know what the SSID is of the router. If you are not familiar with the terms and features I am speaking about, you will need to consult your router manual on how to setup each.
