Ok I'm not very good at networking but I will attempt to explain, and answer my questions the best I can.
Here's what I have. I have 3 computer's hooked up to a 8 port Linksys DSL/Cable router. The router is connected to my Arescom modem. Everything works great. All the computers can access the internet, and I can access everything on the network. (Although I had to change the router to serve up 10.10.10.10 I.P.'s since the Arescom modem has it's own DHCP server and the two were getting confused.)
Ok here's the problem. I want to eventually set up a little ftp server, so I can access hefty files from work, school, etc. The problem is that the FTP program keeps trying to host the FTP server on the network I.P. address (10.10.10.10), and not my real internet I.P. adress. The same goes for games. When I try to start a internet TCP/IP game, it always hosts the game from the network adress. If I run ipconfig, I can only see my network I.P, and not my internet I.P. I'm to my whit's end trying to fix this problem, and I've just about give up on the idea of a ftp server, or a even hosting a game on the internet. Please, any help would be much appreciated.
