Unable to Access Apache server

Specs: Windows 7
The problem I am having is that I cannot access my Apache server from outside the network.
I have apache server installed, and listening on port 9090. Going to http://localhost:9090 brings up the server page just fine. Based on CMD>ipconfig, I determined my local ip ( [this is a wireless machine, by the way]. I enabled port forwarding on my router (linksys) on port 9090 to I have disabled my router firewall and computer firewall for testing purposes. When i type in my external IP (determined from 24.xx.xx.xx:9090, I get a connection timed out error.

Note: I have also tried this with port 8080 (changing it in apache config file and on router port forwarding)

EDIT:When i check my port with i get a timeout error.

Also, i tried accessing it from another computer in the network ( AND and that does not work.

Also, just our external IP address (no port added) brings up our router config page (just as does)

Well if you can't access it from inside the network, then the server is at fault.

Check the 'Listen' directive in Apache's httpd.conf - what is it set to?

Listen is at 9090
(or 8080 when I tried that port).

It DOES work when I go to localhost:9090, does that mean it could still be a server error? I can try uninstalling it and reinstalling and setting it up.
