Besides the firewall issue Jay brings up, your ISP might be blocking 
port 80.  I know my ISP (cable) blocks ports 21, 80, 8080, and probably 
some others.  If this is the case, you would need to set Apache to 
listen on a port that isn't blocked.  Also it probably means you have an 
agreement with your ISP that you won't run a server on your connection, 
just so you're aware.
To test this, you could turn off any firewall you've set up yourself and 
visit https://grc.com/x/ne.dll?bh0bkyd2 to see what's blocked.
