The IP address 192.168.1.101 is a "Local Area Network" address, allocated by the Linksys router to your PC. If you are running an FTP server in your PC, you need to give them your "public" IP address - the one allocated to the WAN side of your router by the ISP. You then need to set up port forwarding in the router to forward the port used for the FTP server to the address 192.168.1.101

FTP normally uses port 21
