Windows 7 x64

Hi, I have a linksys Wireles-G Broadband Router WRT54GS, but I can't get to "The 2 exceptions you will need to configure are
'Outbound service' - Always allow HTTP(TCP:80)
'Inbound Service' - Always allow HTTP(TCP:80) and 'Send to lan server' within that (enter your IPv4 address)
Now when you type the HOST address, e.g., you, and others, will be able to access your site." to work. When I go Firewall in the Security Option, here is what comes up with a check box enable in front of each except the Filter Internet NAT Redirection.
Block Anonymous Internet Requests
Filter Multicast
Filter Internet NAT Redirection
Filter IDENT(Port 113)

Can U please help me figure it out. By the way, I am new to the forum and help will be appreciated.
