I'm running apache webserver on Windows 7. I want to access the webserver through my mobile which share the wifi router with my pc locally, is this possible?

ipconfig /all on my computer lists my ip address as

Wireless LAN adapter Wireless Network Connection:
    IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . :

But I can't access from either my phone or my computer even. http://localhost works, but only from PC. I can ping my mobile ip address which I looked up in my router's DHCP list. And I can access the router's homepage from both PC and mobile.

So why can't I access from my phone? (or PC)
