1. there's a NETWORKING forum where this question belongs.
2. have you read the manual?
It is good that you want to secure your connection. The type of password you set depends on the capability of the wireless cards in your client machines. There are two standards for WEP encryption and neither is very secure these days. If the clients are capable of handling it you should aim to use WPA/PSK.

I used to have a signature but it disappeared and I just couldn't be bothered writing another so please feel free to ingore this.

If it's a wireless router why can't you seem to understand the instructions?

Did you see the #2 instructions?

Stop being so nasty and then come back and ask your questions.

Sometimes I think I understand everything, then I regain consciousness
