    are a few. You want to download/install a dynamic DNS update client and run
    it on your server - the updates done by the built-in services in many
    consumer-grade routers/firewalls tend to be problematic in my experience.

    I've been using dyndns.org for years and am very happy with them.

  3. If you are reffering to the actual hardware router look for the usual
    suspects they all support DDNS, linksys, netgear, dlink, etc and you do not
    have to use any DDNS client.

    What I was saying is that I've had problems with updates done that
    way.....and find the client software more reliable.

  5. I agree... the client update software is more reliable. Have had problems
    using the DDNS capabilities of some routers.

  6. I am not questioning your experience is just that the question was about the
    router and not about what is the best way, it may be semantics but I never
    had problems with built-in DDNS routers.
    If you have the router try it first if you have problems use their default
    client.
    My personal favoite DDNS service is www.dyndns.org

    The question read, as, "how do I do this," actually - and that's what I
    answered.

    Mine, too.
