I hope this is the correct place for this question. I have a problem with a work application that died on my home PC. It's a Dell and running Win XP Pro. I'm going to set up net meeting and have a software friend of mine from work look at it...Obviously I can't bring the PC to work to have him look at it...My question is about the IP address since I have a wireless router and VOIP box between my cable modem and PC. This has always confused me. If I just use the address when I type IPconfig, will he be able to get in..or is there a different address that the wireless router assigns...It's a lynksys g. Hope this makes sense. The other way would be to take the boxes out of the loop and hook cable modem directly to my PC, but I was trying to avoid that if I could. Does anyone have any insight on this? Thanks in advance..

The IP address you get with IPCONFIG is the address that your router has given your computer. If you want to see your physical IP address (ie the address between your router and your ISP) you need to log into the router and poke around. Its this one you need as the other one is useless on the internet.

Sorry if this shows up twice...Thanks for the help! I though the IPconfig address was not the actual one.. I tried remote access from work this morning with that address and no luck..I will poke around my router settings when I get home...hopefully a little early...3 day weekend!! Thanks again for clearing that up!

you won't beable to get it to work just by getting the public ip...you'll need to enable port forwarding on your router...

find your router in This List then follow the guide to set up port forwarding for net meeting
