Cutter has nailed the problem. Length is the key. Make the task too lengthy to be worthwhile for hackers to trudge through.

Who's hacking you the traditional way of typing in your password X times before it locks you out. Anything out of the ordinary untold to others is going to do the job.

Are there wifi routers with daily passwords you can hand out to visitors? Or are we also giving away our wifi password to friends and friends of friends. If not, why not? Don't companies concerned with security understand how this all goes in real life?

Don't forget that there are multiple levels to hacks. If someone can snapshot a database or something but you still have a decent password, you can avoid your personal information being used against you even if it is stolen due to negligence beyond your control. That is unless your data is stored in plain text or uses MD5. In which case, you are screwed.
