How do I configure the verizon D-Link-dsl275b to block pings.

I am trying to pass the Sheilds-Up All Service Ports Stealth test.  Hit proceed and you will see the All Service Ports test.  My configuration fails this test because the router is responding to Ping Requests.  everthing else passes.  Can anyone please help me configure this router to not respond to pings.  

I believe that this is done under the System tab in Objects and Rules (Protocols) but it would not surprise me if I am wrong.  However, in my zeal to correct this problem I deleted the default Ping entry in Objects and Rules (Protocols) and of course I did not write down all the details.  So,  in addition to helping me configure not responding to pings, If someone could help me recreate the default Ping I deleted I would be greatfull.  

Thank you.

This is what I would do.

#1 Reset the router back to the default setting and then

#2 Take and show a screen shot of that area in the router.


If you do not know how to take a screen shot, see

As how to reset the router back to the default settings, I am not sure but it must be one of two ways..

#1 Pressing the reset button for a certain amount of time.

For example, pressing the reset button for at least...

a) ..5 seconds tells the router to reboot.

b) ..10 seconds tells the router to go back to the default settings.

#2 Pressing the reset button as you turn off and back on the power to the router.
