My browsers just do a search of the web for and I don't know how to shut
that search feature off.

  On this machine, if you type in your browser:

  *Are you hosting on your apache server or on 
  ipower? I'm confused as to why your .net and .com addresses resolve to 
  different ip addresses. Do you want the outside world to see the .com 

  As long as your 'server' computer keeps the same address, the port 
  forwarding should work fine as long as your provider doesn't block port 
  80. A big problem could be if your router won't allow you to 'visit' 
  your own server from inside your network. I have the same problem with 
  my newest netgear router. I had to set the hosts file like you above. If 
  you have more than one computer in your network, you need to create the 
  same entries in their hosts files if you intend on viewing your website 
  from them as well. If this is the case then more than likely you need to 
  have your router set as the DHCP server (the router assigns addresses) 
  and then in the LAN IP setup you tell it to assign the same address (you 
  enter the address) to the same computer every time.
