Do you just have the one machine behind the router or are you sharing
it across a lan?
In the former: Forward the IP to your PC (RTFM on how to do this as I
haven't had to do it on a 504 yet)
In the latter: Enable NAT (and DHCP if you haven't/don't know how to
setup static IPs on the LAN client machines).
For static you need to specify IPs for your router and PCs ie:
router: 192.168.1.(n), subnet 255.255.255.0 (/24)
PC1: 192.168.1.(n+1), subnet 255.255.255.0, Gateway 192.168.1.(n)
(your routers IP)
PC2: " ." .". (n+2), etc.
Where n is the last octect of the IP address.
