Change the password and don't tell him the new one. If its a PlusNet TG585v7 router, look at page 27 in the manual. Its the 'WPA-PSK Encryption Key' you want to change. Obviously you will need to change the one on your PC ( if you use wireless ).

Use the Access List feature on your wireless router if it allows you too.

Also change the default password for you router so he can't use your computer to find it out.

WEP is not secure.
Use WPA or WPA2.

Assuming he's using his own computer and not one of yours you could block the MAC address (this should be in the Access list that godsell4 mentioned) - just make sure it's not one of the ones for your own PCs and deny it access to the wireless connection.
