I'm assuming you have a wireless router like a Linksys or D-Link, in which case the firewall is probably blocking incoming requests.
You must configure your "router" to forward requests on port 80 (http) to the address of your laptop.
You should set your laptop to have a static IP address or you'll have to redo the "forward to" address if ever it changes.
On my router (a D-Link) the settings are found in the Port Fowarding page.

Its not blocking anything, it just does not know how to route traffic.
