You do not need to do anything to your NIC. Allow access to port 80
thru your firewall. (You do have a firewall don't you? If not,
disconnect your modem until you do.) Configure you Web server to
listen on all interfaces (the default with Apache).

This has some serious security issues, so a better solution is to
leave port 80 blocked at the firewall and open port 443 (HTTPS). Then
configure Apache for HTTPS, create a self-signed certificate and
install it, etc.
