After reinstalling my Apache Server I can't connect to my Apache Server running on port 8080 outside of my computer.

These addresses work.
http://localhost:8080
http://192.168.1.102:8080

But my external address doesn't.
http://76.178.xxx.xx:8080

I have disabled Norton Internet Security, and forwarded my Linksys WRT54G router.

Why won't it work?

Here's a picture of my port forwarding page, and a copy of my configuration file. Did I forward correctly? Is my file set right?

Admin note:
Config file removed, see forum rules

Doesn't the linksys router use port 8080 for external administration? If so, this is probably why you can't access your website externally. Try changing the admin port in the router.
Cheers,
Phil.
