I'm trying to understand how to gain remote access to my desktop via my laptop when I am, say, at work or at a class. As it is right now, I can access my desktop from my laptop when they are using the same internet connection/router. When I leave here and move over to the school internet, I cannot access the computer. I understand the whole 198.xxx.xxx.x is for the home network and computers on that network. I guess my question is, how can I gain access to my desktop when I am using another internet connection in a different area, etc? How do I obtain the correct IP I need to use (when on the home network I just use 198.xxx.xx.x)?There's been many times I've been in class and needed something off my desktop and been pissed thatI couldn't get to it. My home network uses a Linksys WRT54G, and I'm using the Microsoft given Remote Desktop Access client to access my home PC (that has WinXP pro).
