You will find some information to help you walk through a personal audit at this site:

The end of the article provides guidance on how to protect yourself.

My best practices:
  • Strong complex passwords for WPA-2 (Uppercase, lowercase & numbers, etc...)
  • Strong admin password for your AP. Repeat it twice to make it longer.
  • Limit your broadcast range. I installed my AP in the basement and can barely get a signal past my front lawn.
  • Hide your SSID broadcast.

Good luck...

Allen...
