[Help Me] PORT 80 open

I am runnind Win 7 Ultimate Actiontec GT701D DSL Modem Dlink DIR601 router.
All is stealth except for Port 80.
If I reboot the router and modem all ports are stealth.
Shut down for the day and reboot port 80 0pen again so I reboot router and modem and all are stealth again.
Is there a fix for this?
Thanks

FW up to date?
Is the port open of you unbridge the modem and put the 601 router in to the ISP modems DMZ?

Do you have UPnP enabled on the DIR601?

That is where I would look if any incoming router port were to become enabled without my having explicitly enabling it.

UPnP is a security hole, and if you don't have an explicit need for it, I would suggest that you disable it in your router even if that is not currently the cause of your port 80 leak.

Here is a screen shot showing where to find the UPnP control:




If your Actiontek modem is not in bridge mode, you should also check to make sure that UPnP is not causing the problem in that device (I don't have a screenshot available for that device)
