WiFi on Chromebook running super slow.

I'm on my chromebook at the moment, and webpages aren't opening. Why is this?
Can i find out if anyone is using my WiFi?
Can i put a custom password on my Wifi? (I've gone a WEP key password on it. Would that be secure enough?)

just to double check - if you have BT as your ISP it may be connected to this DNS issue :

only certain web pages would load this morning with BT from around 9am, seems to have been fixed about 20 mins ago

That explains it. I'm on BT and my webpages are opening normally now.
Thanks for the help :)

Just to pipe in you'd want to swap the WEP key for a WPA2 one as it's more secure. What BT router do you have as it's fairly painless to change it.
