I used to host a website from my home server (www.anaikar.no-ip.org) but then later on i switched from a USB modem to a LAN router based modem.
Now none of my friends are able to connect to my website.
Earlier when i had a USB modem all i had to do was go to no-ip.com and put in my ip address(used to change everytime i connected to the internet)
ask windows firewall to unblock port 80, turn on the webserver and everyone was able to connect to the internet.
Now i have a strange problem...
IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.2
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.1
when i go to google and type "What is my ip?" [without quotes]
i get the following:-
Your IP Is 126.96.36.199 WhatIsMyIP.com
WhatIsMyIP.com is the easiest way to determine your IP address.
www.whatismyip.com/ - 2k - 19 Nov 2005 - Cached - Similar pages
when i click on the link on what is my ip.com it shows the following as my ip
IP : 188.8.131.52
Question 1 : So what is my IP?
184.108.40.206[whatismyip.com(before clicking the link in google)]
220.127.116.11[whatismyip.com(after clicking the link in google)]
When i asked my ISP he gave me a strange explanation, what he said was--> From the internet to my ISP on DYNAMIC IP, from the ISP to my home on STATIC IP.
On 192.168.1.2 i can see my website.
On 18.104.22.168 i get could not connect to webserver
On 22.214.171.124 i get a bunch of info, where the heading says this page shows the status of your connection.
