    it would be port 80. it might be some ad blocker or tweak antivirus thing. go to control panel>network>connection then on the second tab it lists your ip. go to http://yourip and see if anything is there

    Your Cable modem does have a web-server built in, but it's used for diagnostic checking & config, and usually is only local, not for webpage hosting. And to shoot you down further, some ISPs have port 80 blocked. Which means you have to use a service to reroute port 80 traffic. One free site I've found that works alright is www.everydns.net, which allows port redirection amonst other things.

    i understand its for diag and config...and port 80...but my ip 12.252.188.16 doesnt show any http servers...nor does 192.168.1.1 my router, or 192.168.1.2 my computer.
    ideas?
    i do traceroute i get 10.0.0.1 or similar...for first hop..that has no ports open at all.

    Some cable modems (like the Motorola Surfboard I have from RR) are configured to respond to 192.168.100.1, so you might try that IP.
