what can I use to see if anything does in fact come in to port 80 and I

If your ISP is blocking the traffic, your machine will never see it,
much less reject it.  Try portscanning yourself from elsewhere, either
with nmap from a shell account, or from a web site such as
http://www.cablemodemhelp.com/portscan.htm or

They usually scan only a limited number of "popular" ports, but 80 would
certainly qualify...
