linksys router and port 80

Why not place a dumb hub in the segment between the cable/DSL device and the
Linksys, plug in a fixed IP address and DG of your linksys and surf through?

Maybe the network will barf that you are hijacking someone else's IP.  If
so, unplug the modem first, or whatever is needed to pull it off (?)

If you can get to it from the hub through the linksys, but cannot get there
from the outside world, you will know it's your provider.  If you cannot get
there from the hub, you may want to futz with the linksys until you can.
