Simplest way to deny access to a class C

Adding null routes to the address space in question will prevent comms, but it won't stop traffic getting to you and then perhaps being logged.
Some sort of firewall with a policy that denies them without logging?

Subject: Simplest way to deny access to a class C
I am sorry in advance if this question sounds too stupid.
I have a small server for personal use of webpages running:
7.3-PRERELEASE FreeBSD 7.3-PRERELEASE #0
it is working fine , no problem very stable.
I just need to block some IP class C address that are always trying
to "discover" directories or applications under the web server. They
do not do and can not do anything since this server has nothing
installed but i am tired of seeing in the logs all the intents they
do every 2-3 seconds.
I have not installed any kind of firewall yet.
What do you think is the best way to accomplish this task? If
possible the easiest one. I do not want to do anything else but just
bloc IP's, at this moment at least.
Thanks in advance.
