Default Suspecting someone is hacking into my wifi

I need a help in securing my wifi router.

I suspect someone is accessing my wifi router. I changed the password. But, I want to secure it tightly from all malicious activity. I came across this article on tips to secure Wi-Fi 5 Tips For Protecting Your WiFi Network From Hackers | NCI . It has mentioned there about enabling WPA2 wireless encryption. Can anyone help me how to do that?
Any other tips on securing the network will be greatly helpful.
FYI : router linksys ae6900.

Default Re: Suspecting someone is hacking into my wifi

go to the web address the router is on. One of mine is another is ... just look at the bottom sticker in most cases or in the manual either physical or PDF and find yours.
Go to the security area (tab or whatever it has) and check the box to turn on the type of encryption you want to use.

your username will probably be admin and your password the first time will be password and it will make you change it. You can also rename it (I like using US_DEA or FBI_SURVEILLANCE, it makes people think twice about what they are doing when they see it in their neighborhood.
