Redefine \footrulewidth:

\renewcommand{\footrulewidth}{0.4pt}% default is 0pt

To learn more about fancyhdr, you could either look into its documentation or at the respective chapter in the Wikibook LaTeX.

I added a couple of resources from a similar answer I was going to give on another question, hope that's okay. – doncherry Jun 8 '12 at 8:17
