Provided your equipment (AP and clients) support it, use WPA2-AES security, along with an access control list on the AP - containing only the MAC (hardware) addresses for your laptop or any other additional equipment that will be using your access point. That's about as secure as you're going to get.

Additionally, turn off the setting for broadcasting your SSID - it doesn't secure anything, but does prevent casual users from seeing your network as available.
