I need some networking help here and as IM no guru , IM not sure what to do
Basically I have a laptop that I take with me when IM out of town
I used to leave my HOME desktop on and could enter my HOME IP into telnet and connect without a problem
I could do anything I needed
then I bought a wireless router
thats where the problem came in
when IM at home I can access my desktop using 192.168.1.2 but obviously this doesnt work when Im away
so I noticed that the router ip address IS my old IP for the desktop
sooooo , what do I need to do to connect when im AWAY from the wireless network
I tried the old IP which is the router IP now and no good
IM certain there is a way to access my desktop
for now I have to unplug the router and plug my desktop in until I return
anyone have an idea?
maybe a port forwarding issue or something I could try?
