Limit the number of devices able to connect
WPA2 Personal Encryption with a STRONG password
WiFi Security Layers to Consider
Require HTTPS for Web Administration Access
CONS: Requires knowledge of IP subnetting, which is a little on the advanced side.
PROS: Limit the quantity of IPs that are available to be assigned to devices.
Wireless MAC Filtering
CONS: This can easily be sidestepped by someone with the proper tools/software.
PROS: This is another one that will protect you from most average people, beyond the encryption.
Change the Default Password
PROS: People can't login to the router without your knowledge
CONS: Extremely quick and easy to crack.
PROS: It's better than nothing and keeps the average user out.
