    Ok, Here is my situation,
    Lets say I am at work or at school and I want to connect to my computer at home via remote desktop. My computer is behind a wireless network and has its own local ip address. How do I access my computer from another computer that is on the network. I have DSL, but it is a dynamic ip, and does changed if my dsl gets disconnected. What can I do? Thanks!

    This is done in whatever is used as a router for the network. If you have a router, it's done in the router's configuration. If you have a computer sharing the connection to the others, you set it up in the ICS properties.
