[Lvlug] OT: Webserver/router woes

I've been Googling this for a while now with no luck. I'm using Comcast as
my ISP, and I've got a Netgear WPN824v2 router. I've setup an Apache web
server on one of my local network machines, and connecting via the local
hostname works fine (i.e. from within the network). However, connecting to
my router's IP from the internet won't seem to forward port 80 to my server
machine. If I disable port forwarding, accessing the router from the net
just tosses me to remote administration on the router, which I don't even
have turned on (and that's set to 8080 as the default anyways).
So since I can make the outside connection without port forwarding, I assume
Comcast is not blocking port 80. However, as soon as I turn on the port
forwarding to get 80 to go to my web server, I get connection refused.
Anybody have any ideas?
