That is because you are giving your internal IP address, which means that users would have to be in your LAN to use it. If you want to allow outside access you'll have to port-forward the proper port (Most likely 80) to your machine. This can be done in the settings for your router.

what do I do if I don't know the password? – Alex Jul 3 '12 at 19:28
You have to know the password, otherwise you need to ask someone who does (Did another family member set it up), or see if there is a reset function on your router. – russjr08 Jul 4 '12 at 1:56
