Wireless security- firewall on Netgear DG834Gv4

I've set up a wireless connection at home with the above modem/router and laptop with Win Vista Home Basic.I've done the recommended changes to the default admin password & system ID.I've enabled WPA encryption,disabled identifier broadcasting and set up MAC filtering.All seems fine and I'm up & running.
But I've left the firewall settings at default-the online instructions are rather daunting for a non-techie!
Do I need to make any changes to the firewall settings to improve security?
(I also have free versions of avast & spybot and Windows firewall is enabled).

No need to adjust any router firewall settings.
