Not if you are using a firewalling router in 'gateway' mode between 
you and the dsl modem and all your inhouse boxes are on a 192.168.x.x 

In that case, the outside IP address exists only in the routers status 
page when it is 'online'.  You can either use a browser to query the 
routers status page, or use the output of http://checkip.dyndns.org 
from your browser.
