How do I configure my router such that I can access Internet using my local IP address?

I have a Cisco router 1700 series and a DSL Internet connection. How do I configure my router such that I can access Internet using my local IP address and can forward my local port to the outside? For example, DSL IP:; Local IP:
Your local IP (192…) cannot be sent outside. What you should do is configure default gateway on your PC as IP of routers Ethernet interface IP. On your router create a static route: "ip route" You might have to give interface name instead of DSL IP.
