    Get one of the free firewall distros such as Smoothwall and plug it into your lan between your hub and your internet connection, and these types of distro's tend to be very easy to set up.

    You didn't tell us whether you have a static IP. Use dyndns if you have a dynamic IP.

    If you are running Apache on the server you could use bblocked. I use it myself. You can just drop the directory into your webdirectory and customise/configure it as much or as little as you want. Very straightforward.
