OK, so I suppose you've got wifi router and your computer is connected by cable or wireless. If so your machine already has own IP like 192.168....In Windows go to Start>Run write cmd and OK. Write ipconfig and enter, now you can see your connection settings and your IP address.

By the way, localhost is equal IP address 127.0.0.1 but you can't use it on remote computer.

Check also if there is http port 80 opened in your computer and it isn't blocked by any firewall.

 

If you have any questions let me know.

while I enter on my android mobile with this ip 192.168.1.3, prestashop automatically redirect to http://localhost on 80 port. Currently my PC is my act as server. Why I could not access my computer's localhost ? How could I check through my mobile. I need to test my prestashop on my mobile.

Hi again,

 

I've just checked it and know what you mean. Go to BO>Preferences>Meta-tags , there you can find your domain information ("localhost") , please delete this and leave empty field. After that it runs on my HTC without redirect to localhost.

Oh, I was looking for this. Unfortunately in Prestashop 1.6.0.9 we can't leave it blank, so what we need is IP address of the local server (192.168.X.Y) so that it's accessible for another devices  :)
