I can't tell every home user how to do this due to the all the different configuration options

But a simple design from the outside-in would be

---->Internet Connection ----->router/firewall------->internal home network. You would block them from an IP address perspective at the router/firewall. The router/firewall can be two separate devices. Shop around. Ask questions at your local store. Do some google searches. Then tell people you're a security guru.
