If you're worried about people spying on your wifi traffic, there's nothing you can do about them being able to capture said packets. There is something you can do about how legible they are to the capturer. Make sure your wifi connection is encrypted with wpa2-tkip (or the other wpa2 one) and use a password more than 12 characters that have various numbers, random capital letters, and some punctuation (if used properly, this would thwart any attempted brute force attack on captured packets), and this is just for home use. You could take it one step further and involve a hardlined radius server with keys that you literally have to move onto the device you wish to connect with, plus a username and password per connector. This would thwart any person attempting to crack the password (which is near impossible with the wpa2 method alone) as it would be difficult to determine which packet came to or was destined for which client, and each packet stream is encrypted on a per-client basis.

I'm thinking maybe it's his parents monitoring his Internet usage.
