there are 2 separate things :
- one is your Apache server, which runs on some machine (of a type we do 
not know yet), but we do know that it has an internal IP address of, and we do know that, apparently, from some (other ?) 
computer in your internal network, you can access this Apache server at 
More, we don't know, because you have not said.
But you got it running, so that is good.

- the second is your network configuration.  Of that one, we know very 
little, and it is a bit confusing when you talk about "with & without 
phone router" and two different (apparently public) IP addresses.

Can you describe your configuration a bit better, like :
- what machine and OS is the Apache running on ?
- what version of Apache, and where did you get it ?
- do you have one, or two connections to the Internet ?
- what are you doing to try to access your webserver from the Internet ? 
what machine are you using for that, and how is it connected to what ?
- is the machine where Apache is running the same as the machine where 
you use your browser ? How many machines are there in your internal 
network ?

Another important aspect : you give two "public" (Internet) IP addresses 
above. Are these two IP addresses permanent (always the same), or do 
they change every day, or when you reboot your Internet router ?
