    If you provide the exact model of your wireless router I could probably direct you to a website with detailed instructions. Additionally, you will need to make sure port 80 is open on the server.

    In most cases there will be a section of the router called "special application" or it may be called "port forwarding." In either case you will typically have to fill in a name (apache) the port range (80 in this case) the transport layer protocols (TCP) and the IP address of your local machine.

    You need to enable the "Virtual Server HTTP" for the IP address of your server.
