Inbound IP Filtering / Firewall Rules

Does this or another Netgear wireless router have a inbound IP address filter / firewall rule option?

I have had history with connected devices being compromised (like an IP camera) and I'd like to be able to block an external IP address or range from having access to my connected devices that have open ports.

I've seen this functionality on older routers but I am having trouble finding it on new ones.

Anyone have any information on this?

Thanks!

Re: Inbound IP Filtering / Firewall Rules

I am looking for a way to set up inbound filters too.

The only options in the menus is to block services.
The manual shows there should be a checkbox to allow trusted I.P.s,
but there is no such option.

Looks like I will have to go through a DD-WRT or Tomato firmware to
get the functionality that I need. 😞

If you a solution, please post it.
