The "listen 80" is in the main config file.

The only thing that works is

I was reading your comment about DHCP and LAN.  My router is set as DHCP 
server.  I can't get what the LAN settings should be.  Are familiar with the 
Linksys Router.  If you are, then would any settings in the advanced routing 
tab do anything for me here?  If it does then I'll attach a copy of the 
routing tables that are in the router for you to look at.

  What does the apache config file look like? You should have:

  Listen 80

  in the main config.

  and it should answer if you type any of: (current machine ip as assigned by the router)

  ...into your browser as long as your hosts file has:    localhost   localhost is always set as the local machine (loopback) is assigned by your router and doesn't need to be set in the
  hosts file unless you configure the router to assign that ip to that
  machine all the time.

    You have been making a lot of changes lately. You might want to see if
  there is a computer group in your area. If so, there is bound to be
  someone that can help you. Believe it or not, once this is set up
  properly and you can see how it works it's not hard to understand.

If you're using port-forwarding you should turn off DHCP in
the router and use static IPs for each workstation.  At least,
that's what my (old) LinkSys manual says.
