    I just set up an Apache server. I went to myip.us and got a domain for my ip adress. From my computer I can get to the index page of my site. But when I use my other computer to try to get to my site (by myip.us or by my ip adress) it gives me a prompt for a password to get to my router. I log in from that prompt and it brings me to the settings for my router? I don't know how to configure it so other people just go to my site instead of the router prompt. It's a wireless linksys router. I read all through the manual and FAQ and it says absolutely nothing. I also did a quick search on google, didn't find anything. Can anyone help me out?


    -Computer hosting apacher server can see website without getting router prompt.

    - Any other computer gets router prompt.

    I'm hosting the Apache server on Win Xp btw.

    What is the Exact Make and Model number of your Linksys. What you will need to do is setup your router to do port forwarding. YOu will need to forward port 80 on your router to the internal IP address on your lan. On my router it is listed as Virtual Servers. Your manual should show you how to do this.

    I would also turn off the ability to access your router from the Internet. Most of the routers I have encountered have this feature as well. Do you really want someone trying to hack your router setup.

    Thanks for the reply, Lwd. I will try that out as soon as I get the time. I'll let you know how it goes. Thanks, again.
