    Is it possible to host ftp on a computer wich is connected to a wireless router.... The router has a fixed IP but the computer wich I want the ftp to be on only has adress like this one that works only on the computers wich are connected to the router....
    How can I access the ftp from the internet (or is it imposible)

    First off, the machine on your LAN with the private IP address has to stay at one address. Many routers allow you to lock a MAC address to a specific IP address. If yours doesn't have that option, I'd set it up with a static IP address.

    Next, install an FTP server on the machine, and open port 21 on the router to the FTP server machine's IP address.
