Yes, I think that's quite normal.

The idea seems to be that the internal machines can not be accessed, packets
can not be routed to
them directly, so no firewall is necessary.

In fact, to activate the firewall one has to go over hidden config
settings - by hidden I mean:

· export config to a file on a computer.
· edit xml config with an editor.
· activate firewall in that config file.
· upload changed config back to the router.

That sounds a bit unusual though.

It is, doesn't it? :-)

Forget about the internal web page for configuration, nor telnet;
until you do that, the firewall config is not accessible.

Which kind of box is this??

A Comtrend.
