B) VPN/IPSec
C) Virtual Server

D) Advanced

3. Dynamic DNS
4. NAT
5. RIP
6. SNMP Configuration
7. Static Route

Which option should I use?

I am on Dynamic IP, what should I do? the firewall require me to input
details manually, the PCs behind the firewall are typical home user kind

I try to ban icmp by using Packet Filtering to Drop all ICMP (both incoming
& outgoing) from 0.0.0.0 to 0.0.0.0, it seems to work but after I rebooted
the firewall, the rules that I put in place is gone

for testing, I try to ban all TCP by using Packet Filtering from 0.0.0.0 to
0.0.0.0, it doesn't seems to work, why?

Either read the documentation that came with the device or pay a skilled
person to configure it for you.

What you're asking can't be answered.  You *really* need to read up a bit
and understand how TCP/IP works as well as how your firewall works --
there's no way around it.  If that's not an option, you should return the
product and get something that isn't "designed for professionals".  A badly
configured firewall can be worse than nothing, as it can obstruct legitimate
traffic while still allowing hackers in (and out).

Well, I suggest that you get on the phone with Tech Support for the device
and have them walk you through it a little bit if you can. They will do
that for you on the basics.

That would depend on the firewall OS that you are using.
