I have a 2wire 2700HG-D DSL modem/router.  I've set one of my PCs to allow port 80 traffic.  It looks like this in the router:

Web Server - TCP 80...

However, when I type in the external IP for my network, nothing gets through.  After a few seconds, I get redirected to Google's search engine with my IP address entered in as the search critera.  Locally, I can connect to the web server via the 101 IP address.   I've turned off the PC firewall and still no luck.  I had this working previously but than had to reset the router.  

I also can't connect via remote desktop from the outside, port 3389, which is setup in the router as well.  I can connect locally on the network via remote desktop.

On the PC, I'm running Vista Ultimate with IIS 7.  I can browse locally on that machine as well.

Any ideas on what I'm leaving out to get it working?
