1. Change default administrator password to another complex and strong one;
2. Open router firewall;

4. Disable telnet;
5. Disable IP directional boradcast, disable IP route and IP Redirection

Ping and tracert use the ICMP protocol. You can drop all ICMP type packets using specific firewall rules for this purpose.
