Apache Configuration Question

Access Localhost on other devices (Same Network)

I have installed wordpress on my laptop and have been developing a website via WAMP. Localhost/wordpress works fine. Everytime I go to that, it brings me to my site. Great!

Now here is the thing. I want to be able to access the site throughout my home network. I.e. Testing it on my other devices/machines. Android Tablet etc...

I have done the ipconfig and am able to access my ip however when I go there, it just brings me to the WAMP Server Config. page. What am I doing wrong?

Thank you for your time. If you need further information that I am not providing please let me know.

What I normally do it change http://localhost/wordpress via the Settings to the the IP address of the computer such as That will make your site accessible over the LAN.
