go to the line
<Directory "c:/wamp/www/">
#use the below .....
AllowOverride all
Order Allow,Deny
Deny from none
Allow from all

Which IP address are you using? the LAN or the WAN? You need to use the WAN IP and you need to foward the port from the router to your LAN IP.

You go to your router settings. Find the section that says something like port forwarding. And tell it to forward port 80 to your LAN IP. Each router is different so that's all I can say.
