is there a way to keep other people from using my Wi-Fi if I get a wireless router? I don't trust my neighbors
Yes, any wireless router should allow you to set a password for access.
hmmm...ill stop by walmart next time I go to work, or see if I can get one cheap off of amazon. any brands that are particularly good? --- Official Ricards Rapier of the Dark Souls Xbox 360 board

I've had good experiences with Asus routers. It's easy to set up, there are lot's of different options (game boost, p2p connection stuff), and I've never been in a situation where the internet messed up because of the router.
I think that Asus routers run expensive though.
I also had a really old Netgear router for awhile, no idea what they are like now, but I remember that one being fairly unreliable to the point of frustration. --- "You stay classy, San Diego." - Ron Burgundy "**** you, San Diego." - Ron Burgundy

These are good wifi routers NetGear LinkSys Asus NetTrend(I have this one)
And yes now all routers should allow you to set up a password to keep others from hogging your bandwidth.
I also recommend trying Tigerdirect, Frys and geeks websites. I got my 150N NetTrend from TigerDirect for $14.95 no tax and free shipping :D --- XBL GamerTag: NamiXJin PSN(Ps Vita) ID: JinZer069
