To see who's connected to your router: look at Attached Devices.

To secure its wireless: go to Wireless Settings and set authentication to recommended WPA2-PSK(Wi-Fi Protected Access 2 with Pre-Shared Key) with a strong Network Key.

Or, if it's not needed, turn the wireless off tongue

A lot of still current devices aren't WPA2 capable so this could cause problems for the uninitiated.
