how do I add a pasword to secure my home wireless connection

Re: secures wireless connection

which modem and router model do you have.   model #?

 In general you can follow this guide for Verizon Equipment

 How can I change my wireless network to WPA2 or WPA encryption?

Verizon recommends using the strongest network encryption compatible with your network devices. In most cases, that is WPA2 encryption. However, you will notice some of the older devices below may not be compatible with WPA2 encryption. In those instances, WPA is the preferred encryption because it is still stronger than WEP.

For step-by-step instructions for upgrading your network security, select the router or gateway you are using and the type of encryption you prefer.
