Seems that Apache is configured correctly. As far as I see,
you need to configure the router (connected to your ISP)
to direct HTTP requests on port 80 to the one of your two
computers that runs the Apache webserver; at the moment,
the static IP points to the modem / router / whatever
which does not know how to handle HTTP requests from
the Internet.
