How can I modify the Windows 7 firewall to block all incoming requests from a certain IP in my network?

In "Windows Firewall with Advanced Security", I can define new rules. However, none of the options in the "Inbound Rule Wizard" seems to fit (or, more likely, I just don't understand it).

Just go through theses steps while running the wizard

  1. On the first page choose Custom for the type of rule.
  2. Click Next till you get to Scope and put the ip address in the remote IP section.
  3. After that click Next to Action and choose Block the connection.
  4. Click next till you get to Name and give the rule a name.
