You are away that all internet traffic travels over port 80 right? So, I am just wondering why you need to have port 80 turned on or whatever.
EDIT: Not all traffic runs over port 80 like email, or FTPs and other things.

Cheers!

Port 80 shouldn't be blocked...But...what you can do is edit the httpd.conf file so Apache listens to a different port.

Click on the wamp icon
Go to Config->httpd.conf
Edit "Listen 80" and "ServerName localhost:80" to whichever port you want
Restart wamp

A Few ISP's block it, to prevent people from using their connection to host websites..

after you've set it to listen on another port you'll have to tell your web browser that.

eg
http://mysite.com:8080
or http://192.168.0.1:8080

mmm
Be a bit smarter.

1. what kind of connection You have?
2. Do You use a router?

router may block that port, so Your site will not be visible to outsiders.
Allso, if You have a router You need to port-forward.

If You don't have static IP, you need a small service, wich will allways store Yours current IP, and forward a domain name to it.

So visitors will allways be getting to yours IP whatever it will be.

Alternatively You may want to get a hosting company for this.

thi is still the best hosting service I know of, and yes it will allow You to have a decent site for free.
