Do not disable SSID broadcast to make your WiFi invisable.
It just doesnt help and can cause problems.
The "bad people" still will see your WiFi with freely available tools.
It's a myth that needs to be forcibly dragged out behind the woodshed.

WEP encryption is very vulnerable, it is hacked in less
than a minute. Don't use WEP.

WPA is much better than WEP, but nowadays you should use
the WPA2-encryption for security.

On the newer routers there is a button for easy connect
from windows to your WiFi.
It's called WiFi Protected Setup (WPS).
There a flaw in WPS, it can be used to hack your WiFi without
the need to press that button.
Disable WPS.
