You obviously don't know what a proxy is. It's also clear that you don't understand how home routers or servers operate on port 80. You can access them, but without the login name and password, you aren't getting in. That is unless you are running a public web server. In which case, it's no different than any other server on the net.
Even if you had the login details, what would you do? Most routers can't be configured to act as a proxy. They're just dumb pieces of hardware with the software burned to firmware. At best, you could change the dns entries in the router and make life miserable for its owner. Or if you were really mean, shut it down.
Also, a botnet doesn't need open port 80 to operate any more than you need one to surf the net.
