Unless I'm not understanding what you are trying to do--simply password protect the router. Use WPA2 and a strong password, it hasn't been broken yet--unlike WEP and WPA which have. It won't affect you at all unless you do get a wireless card, but we can deal with that later.

Go into the settings of your wireless modem and disable wireless.

If you need help with that, please post the make and model number of your wireless modem.
