Which IP number were you using ?
It should be the one in your router settings titled WAN (wide area network), not your LAN (local) ip-address. Or you can find out your 'outside' IP-address by visiting whatismyip.com from home.
Can you access your router and check the firewall rules to see if port 80 is actually forwarded to your DS ??
By the way ; are you trying to connect to your Internet IP from your LAN ? I've heard that some routers have problems connecting that way ; you should try it from a different location to really test this.
EDIT: maybe I'm asking and stating the obvious, but I don't know exactly what you tried ...
It's obvious too, but, have you opened the ports of the firewall inside DSM 4.0?
I my self are not completely sure that EZinternet always works as intended, so I always suggest that you forward your ports inside your router your self.
And the thing about checking if you can see the homepage inside LAN, is always a good thing, as stated in the other post not all routers support loopback, and if the router don't, then you cant see a homepage inside your LAN

I would not know where to make that 'open ports' happen on DSM other than in Firewall but the DS is not directly connected to Internet that is why I have the router. There are no firewall rules set up at all on the DSM therefore.
Does me having the Autoblock feature switched ON within DSM have any relevance to this problem?

I doesn't like EZInternet because is automatic so I prefered to open the ports I need in my router and in DSM. If you have used the smartphone to go in the DSM, your DSM is in Internet. To look forward for open ports in your router, you must look for something about NAT or Virtual Server or similar in your router.
First, in DSM, go to Control Panel-Firewall. If it's activated, deactivate and try it. If it's activated you'll need to open the same port you have in the router.
If you open a port in the router you need to open the same in DSM if you have activated Firewall.
By the way, which router do you have (brand and model)?
A screenshot of the router settings with ports that you already forwarded (for games etc) would be great too !
