1.Please go to and make sure this is how your static ip address is configured in your dlink.Also make sure that you don't have firewall enabled on windows xp.If you do you can make an exception to allow port 80 through.

2.Who is controlling your dns.

3.Do you have your domain name pinted to your ip.
