Wireless router security and efficiency

I purchased a laptop for the first time two days ago. Consequently I have set up wifi in my house, using a Linksys Wireless-G broadband router (connected to my broadband modem and my Desktop PC) which was in a cupboard in my house - it must be about seven years old.
Any things I should be aware of with regards to wireless routers? What about security? What are the dangers, and how are they best prevented? I have set my router to:
SSID broadcast enable (what is a broadcast in this context?) Firewall enable Block anonymous requests Disable access restrictions Mode - mixed
Just guessing that these were the best options.
Also, does the quality of the router affect the performance/speed of the laptop online?
Thanks very much indeed, Laurence
