I've been reading some of the articles on computer security on this website but I'm still unsure about setting up a hardware firewall. I currently have Norton Internet Security acting as my software firewall but since I also have a Playstation 3 connected to the internet, via a Netgear DGN2200, I thought it would make sense to ensure that the hardware firewall is working too.

When I look at the router admin page>firewall rules> outbound services and inbound services there are options to add, edit, move and delete. The rules for both outbound and inbound are currently set to "default".

Separately, but related to open and closed ports, there is an article about Terminal Network Services port 3389. Does that apply to a single desktop user. If it does, do I need to change the port?
