Get a Cbale/DSL Router such as the Linksys BEFSR41.

Specifically block both TCP and UDP ports 135 ~ 139 and 445 on the Router
Disable all administration of the Router form the WAN side
Disable WAN requests (such as pings)

When you do this, your computers on the LAN side will be safe from Hackers and internet
worms. If you were to do a Port Scan such as from; http://www.broadbandreports.com/scan
no ports will be seen as "open" and from the POV of the internet, nobody will even know you
exist behind the WAN address.
