Those ports are all open on my modem too.

Port 53 is DNS
Port 80 is HTTP -- for modem management GUI (
Port 443 is HTTS (secure version of HTTP)

Not sure about what they use 8081 for ... but if you "telnet 8081" you can get a response out of it that indicates a web service is running (i.e. "bad request" response).

ICECap Manager is a management console for BlackICE IDS Agents and Sentries. By default, ICECap Manager listens on port 8081, transmits alert messages to another server on port 8082, and has an administrative username of 'iceman' possessing a blank password.

Basically it's an Intrusion Detection System built-in to the modem for embedded Linux systems and Windows Access.
