    I'm running and apache server on my laptop through a wireless connection to the WCG200. I have a dynamic IP, so I'm using no-ip. For some reason, when i go to my no-ip url it just goes into my router page, even though I have the router set up to forward port 80 to my computer. I think that maybe it can only forward things through the wired connection but I'm not sure. I've checked the port forwarding page multiple times and it is setup correctly. I've set this up on another router before and had no problems.

    I think the computers must require a static internal ip Like 192.168.0.10. The external ip wouldn't need to be static with noip.

    My linux notebook will wirelessly serve a page, provided the webserver is run with root privileges and port forwarding is to its internal ip. The trick is to easily get the webserver to start on boot in root with no user input. Which I have yet to crack.

    Now on wireless Acer, I could not get it to serve a page. I think some remenant of Mcaffee after un-install Mcaffee is still blocking that port.
