Cannot view local webserver

D-link dsl 2640r which talktalk provide when you switch to their services.

im having a problem getting it to forward browsers to my webserver hosted locally on my pc connected to the router i have setup the port forwarding to my pc ip but when people goto my ip where it should take them to my webserver it doesnt instead it prompts for authentication to log into the router which is bizzarrrr.

please could anyone with any knowledge or experiance with this router or how to allow people to go throught the router to my webserver email me asap.

    I have a DSL-2640R router and want to use port forwarding to an IP Security camera. I have set up a link to my camera using ' but entering this only accesses the router, requesting a router login! Need urgent help; D-link tell me they cannot provide support and that I must go back to TalkTalk and vice versa.


    Please help.

Go to and then have them type in that ip address. if you have had them typing in your internal ip address that will not work. Try the ip that that website tells you is yours. Also do you have it forward port 80 to your computer? also you should set up DHCP reservations for the server. Hope that that helped.
