Accessing Apache behind Router

Hi everyone,
I've been trying to figure out how to access my webserver.
I've configured Port Forwarding for ports 80 for a computer 
I obtained the IP Address ( ) which I tried to access 
but could not get a connection.
I also added some lines to httpd.conf but Apache would not start.
Listen 80
Port 80

Thanks in advance.

Re: Accessing Apache behind Router

Here's the strange thing,
if I access, I'm prompted for Login/Password to manage my 
Router. and 192.168.100 is the only way I can access my webserver.
I should add that I have tried to configure dyndns.org to work with my 
router but with no success and that if I disconnect my router, I am 
able to access Apache.
