I'm pretty sure it's going through a modem first, but I don't know. How would I do port forwarding on the modem?Hello drawingamouse, and welcome to TSG.
Is your router connected directly to the Internet or is it going through some kind of modem first? If it is going through a modem that is not configured as a gateway, you may need to do port forwarding on the modem as well.
Do you have something connected on the LAN side of your router that will reply to PING requests coming in through the forwarded port?
Is there a possibility that your ISP is blocking that particular port number? An ISP that may not allow web hosting for an account of your type, may block port 80.
