I have a basic website using IIS on a Win7 64 ENT Pc.  It works fine on the PC itself, but no other PC in my internal "Home" network can access it.  I have a "Piece of Junk" ATT Router and a Linksys Wireless Router.  I looked at both and don't see port 80 or 8080 being blocked.

any idea's?

Have you checked out your firewall on the machine itself?  In windows 7,  you cannot simply turn off the Windows Firewall/ICS service, so, as a test, you can go to Control Panel> Windows Firewall> and turn it off.

You can also add an exception for your internal network there (option on the left side)  I suggest, for your network, you could add an exception to the firewall for all traffic originating from the LAN (eg: 192.168.1.0-254 or 192.168.1.0\24 would be the source address, and you would allow to and from traffic on all ports).

since you don't have dns setup you need to use the ip of the webserver box

http://192.168.x.x

you may be able to access dns settings in your router to point the website name to the ip address
