the following figures are make-believe:

80.222.2.22 (dynamic)
adsl modem (external gateway), speedtouch alcatel 510i
10.0.0.138
|
|
10.0.0.1
wireless router
192.168.1.254
|
|
192.168.1.1 (set as static)
my wireless web server, windows xp, IIS 5.1

i am using no-ip.com's update client and it shows that everything is working well and it always is displaying the correct external modem address. (as a side note) what is wierd though is that when i:
whois mywebserver.no-ip.org (also ficticious) i get a NOT FOUND.
on the inside i can't get port forwarding to work. i go into 10.0.0.138 and NAPT and specify:
192.168.1.1:80
0.0.0.0:80

then i type in http://80.222.2.22 and internet explorer doesn't find the server. i can't figure out what is the matter. on the wireless router i even specify that 192.168.1.1 will receive all traffic to the "web" server. i have changed the external port number to 1234 in case my isp was blocking 80 but that didn't help. please help.

well, i got a reply back from no-ip.com saying that their sites *.no-ip.* aren't listed in whois. so there's the answer to that side question but i still am having trouble getting the webserver part going. need help.

i forgot to mention that i have WEP turned on for connections to the wireless router. but would that have anything to do with it? i can't imagine it would.

i answered my own question (in norwegian):
http://forum.hardware.no/index.php?s=&act=ST&f=61&t=297735&st=0

short and sweet:
my problem was that at the adsl modem i was NAT-ing to the web server's IP when i should have been NAT-ing to the wireless router who then would NAT further to the web server. it works now.

at the adsl modem i erased my NATP entry (192.168.1.1) and put in a new one (10.0.0.1 - IP to the wireless router) (port 80 external/internal) (the outside IP needs to be set to 0.0.0.0). at the wireless router i configured it so that it would then send all external traffic it got at port 80 to the web server IP (192.168.1.1) at 80.

another important aspect was that i am not able to check to see if it works from other machines within the home network. i had to log myself on to a machine at work (outside my home network) to check it, and it works :) if i'm inside the home network and i type the external IP address (or my no-ip.org domain name) to the adsl modem into the address field of my web browser then i will just get an error telling me that the page isn't available. i can access the server from the inside by just typing the IP to the webserver in the web browser address field: 192.168.1.1 (which has always worked the whole time, the problem i was having was accessing it from the outside).
