How to use an iMac as a wirless router with WPA2?

I would like to share my broadband Internet connection that is provided by RJ-45 wired connection to my iMac. I have a Windows 7 laptop that I would like to use and have it connect to my iMac wirelessly. I have figured out how to share the iMacís airport connection but unfortunately the MacOS X 10 software only supports WEP.

Surely there must be some freeware out there that utilizes more advanced cryptography. I live in an apartment complex with lots of script kiddies sold be quite dangerous to allow the possibility of people utilizing my Internet connection.
