Ok, try this:

 LAN = gateway= netmask=
 PC1 =
 WAN = gateway= netmask=
 PC2 =  gateway= netmask=

If you remove all the rules then all traffic will be blocked. If you
leave the default LAN rule in, then your PC1 should be able to connect
to the PC2. PC2 will not be able to connect to PC1 or to ping WAN as
this is blocked. WAN should be able to ping PC2 (you can use the web
interface to do this). To get the web interface you should type
http://10.0.02/ into your web browser on PC1.

Lets get the simple stuff working, then we can try to setup a DMZ later.

hope I haven't made any mistakes in the stuff above :-)
