Setting up remote administration on Linksys router

I'm trying to set up remote administration on my Linksys router. In the router admin page, I have enabled remote administration and set the port to 8080. I then took note of the IP address assigned by my ISP.

From my office at work, I tried to go to:

http://my.ip.address:8080

But it always times out. What am I doing wrong?

Re: Setting up remote administration on Linksys router

check whether you can ping the ip address from the remote location...and ensure that the ip add is a public ip address...if everything seems to be fine and still facing the same issue, try upgrading the router's firmware ..
