Default Why other computers can't see my web page

I am trying to have my own web site, I installed IIS on my XP Pro system, I put a index.html page in the wwwroot folder. When I typed http://localhost/index.html, the page shows up, but when I try to type my computer's IP address http://192.162.1.100/index.html on my roommate's computer, it just can't find the page. I am not sure is that because of the router? Cause my computer use a router to connect the Internet, if it is the router make the problem, how can I resolve this problem? Thank you

when you type "ipconfig", the ip address it gives you is your local ip number

but when I use the IP address http://www.whatismyip.com gives to me, "24.102.57.162". I typed http://24.102.57.162/index.htm, it just can't find the page, when I use http://192.168.1.100/index.htm, this page shows up

I am sorry this is just my type mistake, but I think this is not my point. My point is after I installed IIS on my computer and put index.htm file inside the wwwroot file. When I use http://localhost/index.htm or http://myIPaddress/index.htm, the context of the web page shows up, but when I use my friend's computer and entered http://myIPaddress/index.htm can't find the page, I just don't know how to fix it.
