Why is my Static IP not found remotely?

I have Port Forwarding set up on my DLink router to forward all Port 80 requests to an internal Win 2003 IIS server on my network.
This was working fine last night when I first set it up and I could access it from outside my network using the static IP address and view web pages.
Today however I have tried accessing it but the computer hasn't been used for a few hours (I am at work and the server is at home) and the IP address isn't recognised.

Is this due to my ADSL connection falling asleep or do I need to change something on my server such as Wake On Lan or something similar.

I realise the security issues and negative aspects of hosting via my private ADSL line but it's just for experimanting with Win 2003 and IIS6.

Any help is appreciated,

Thanks in advance,

Chris

From what I can tell, your internet connection has dropped.

Which model of D-link router are you using?

Yep, looks like your router may have not re-connected after an ADSL line drop or it has lost sync. Some routes have an idle timout setting so if no activity on th elocal network, it disconnects from the ADSL line. So this may have happened.

Or someone has unplugged / powered-off your router / PC
