Can somebody tell me where to get information on what do I need to do to run my web page out of my own computer using W2k Pro with a shared cable connection (dynamic IP)using a linksy router?

Right now, I'm running my web page out of the server of the same company I registered my domain name.

I also have IIS installed in W2k.

Any info will be appreciated.
Thanks,

Can probably contact the company you registered with about getting DNS for your home web server and help setting it up.

DNS should cost ya 50$ or so.

RTFM :) 

Seriously - check your windows help files for info on how to get your webpage up and running on your computer. The helpfiles are really good and it's an easy thing to do.

As far as your linksys just go to the configuration (http://192.168.1.1 by default) go to the advanced setup and be sure port 80 is forwarded to the IP of the computer you want. You should be good to go. You might have to switch to fixed ip addresses instead of DHCP to get the forwarding working on the linksys.
