What do you want protection from?
Is your IP address static?

Besides learning what "firewall" means (see below) and how to configure your router as a firewall, there are commercial turn-key firewalls you can buy which do exactly what you're talking about.

When you say, protecting your ip, do you mean protecting the computer that is connected to that machine?

There are many options for physical firewalls that will help filter out requests for communication from potentially malicious sources. Most routers will do this for you.

I would recommend reading this article on Firewalls from wikipedia.
