    The problem is with your website configuration.
    Your Website address and Site Address use the localnet ip address of the server, refering to “”
    So when my browser fetches your homepage from “”, it get the page contents correctly and in full, BUT this does not include the css, images, js etc. These resources are named in the page and my browser uses these to attempt to fetch the resource, but in the instance of say the style.css file, the resource is:
    <link rel="stylesheet" id="twentysixteen-style-css" href="" type="text/css" media="all">
    BUT what is my browser going to get ? Certainly nothing from your router+server at “”, so what my browser gets is a timeout, and there is no CSS nor images etc. The same happens for images like:
    <img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-27" src="" alt="" width="489" height="726">

    All the solutions entail going through the “moving WordPress” procedures, details here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress also there is a plugin “DUPLICATOR” that has a good reputation.

    So what to do ? A few options:
    1) A bad solution is to change the site address and wordpress address to use “”, the website will work fro the rest of us, and from your LAN the request will go out to your router and MAYBE it directs it back to your server, not sure about this last aspect.
    2) Buy a domain name and buy hosting, run your site on the web and not your LAN.
    3) Buy a domain name and point it to your router “”, then configure your server to use the VirtualHost technique, details here:
    For computers on your LAN put the domain name into each “hosts” file and have it point to your server “”, details on the hosts file here:

    The log files/info you would need to have cracked this are in your browser, using the “net” tab on the browser inspector would show how it was getting hungup on requesting the css/jpg/js resources. A browser on the LAN would get snappy results, while a browser on the internet side would get timeouts and failures.
