I have a linksys 4 port ethernet router connected to the cable modem so my roommates and i can share our internet connection, but I can't figure out how to enable web sharing while behind the router. Anyone know how to fix this?

First, set up your machine with a static IP address. Then, login to the router, go to Advanced > Forwarding, and setup port 80 to forward to your machine's IP address. That should take care of it.

If the router supports nat, you need to open port 80, how you do that depends on your router, telneting to it useally works.
