Router Firewall Rules

I own a D-Link DSL-504 router and i am having trouble setting up the firewall to work. i want to be stealthed which means i will need rules for all my apps.  Once i have 1st working rule i am sure the rest will follow. Can any1 offer help with what is wrong with these rules

     SOURCE             PORT      DEST           PORT
DNS           53      0
DNS      0       53
WWW           80     0
WWW         0       80

i cant see where i am goin wrong. all my other routers settings are fine.  

P.S Do i have to add rules for the ethernet interface aswell as the WAN port?

Thank You in advance


RE: Router Firewall Rules

Are you trying to just configure port forwarding to make sure it clears your router to the proper place? You shouldnt have to filter it outbound if you are running a NAT enabled router, because it will automatically cvonvert it to the correct port, etc..
