I would set up to go from the DSL/Cable modem directly to the router THEN to any other hubs, etc. Most DSL/Cable routers have some sort of firewall built in. I have a NetGear RT314 which does (although I know it's not nearly as secure as a high end firewall, it seems to do the job...). The router will forward any requests to port 80 (or any others you set up) to your webserver, but other ports will be blocked there and never see your internal network...
