The .net is served by a name server on the east cost and is associated with Domain servers
in listed order: NS1.IPOWERDNS.COM and NS1.IPOWERWEB.NET.

The .com is served by a name server some where in Montana and shows as Domain servers in listed

Nothing is served by a computer on my net work.

The is the IP address of my modem setting here near my desk.  I don't know what
the is, could be ipower, as they are hosting the .net  How did you come to your
IP address conclusion?

I tried the port forwarding but that creates another problem.  each time that I restart my
computer it changes the IP of the computer, for example one time the IP my be and
the next time I start it it my be  However the when I run ipconfig /all it shows
the computer with the Apache server is on as being: host: michael-2.  When I am on one of
the other computers on my network and type michael-2 I see my page.

  Are both of these sites being served by a computer on your network? Are 
  they both served from the same connection? What IP address do you see if 
  you go to ?

  That suggests that your program is not with a firewall on your computer. 
  I don't think the issue is with your Apache configuration. I think that 
  it is your network configuration. Have you set up port forwarding on 
  your router yet? Have you ever been able to access your Apache server 
  from outside your network?

  I was talking about your computer, the one that Apache is running on.
