That depends. If the router is performing Network Address Translation, then the only IP address anyone sees is your router's, not your PC's. There is no way to hide that without using some external anonymous proxy.

Agree with Lrmoore on the part that only the Public IP would be visible outside. But there are ways to get your private ip address as well even with NAT by running some Javascript/ActiveX etc...
