I have 3 PC's all going into the same router. One of these PC's had a webpage on them that someone could visit by typing in the url. It was something like:

http://111.222.333.444/upload/index3.htm

My router was getting old so I changed it to a Netgear DG834G.

All the PC's can still talk to each other via the network. But for some reason, the above url no longer works. I can access the upload page using my internet IP number. But when I get someone from outside the network to try to access it, it comes up "the connection has timed out". This has happened for the last 4 days, which was when I swapped the routers over.

What do you think could be causing this? How can I diagnose the problem?

Thanks,

Jon

I believe the solution is pretty simple, your new router has not been configured to forward the port for HTTP access. If you visit www.portforward.com and follow the prompts, they have port forwarding instructions for most popular routers.
