You go into your router admin and tell it to forward all port 80 
requests (or whatever you set Apache to use) to your computer. My 
Linksys denies all incoming connections on all ports except 80 (which 
is transfered directly to my box) so that I can host the websites. All 
you need to know is your PC's LAN IP (it'll be 192.168.1.x, where x is 
the number you put in the empty feild, I have a screenshot of my router 
setup[0] to clarify)
