Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,

Just go to the control panel, choose >use large icons, then choose the "Network and Security Center icon, usually it's off to the left side. You can also go lower right for this, right click the network icon and choose "Open Network and Security Center".

Once there look to the left navigation pane and choose "Manage wireless networks" once open you just click on which ever connection you need to manage and set the security for each one seperately.
