Free Dynamic DNS Service Setup - No Longer Free

Unfortunately, the Dynamic DNS service provided by dyndns.com is no longer free, however, the good news is that it only costs $29.99 per year.  DynDNS or DDNS is a service that allows you to configure a domain name, such as www.mydvr.com to route to a dynamic IP address, such as those typically provided by cable and DSL internet access providers for Internet access.  A dynamic IP address means that your Internet connection is assigned a different IP address each time you connect or logon.  It is recommended that you purchase a router/switch that supports DDNS natively and  that you connect the router or switch to your cable or DSL modem.  There are other providers of free dynamic DNS service, but CCTV Camera Pros recommends Dynamic Network Services, Inc (dyndns.com) because it has been around for a long time and we have tested it thoroughly for our surveillance equipment.  Follow these setup instructions to create and configure an account with dyndns.com.  NOTE: if your internet connection supports a static IP address, it is not necessary to setup Dynamic DNS.  If you are unsure, please contact your internet service provider.

  1. Open the routers control panel by going to the IP address http://192.168.1.1/ in a web browser using the computer that is attached to your router. You will be prompt for a userid and password.  If you did not setup a password on your router, the default for the WRT54G router is to leave the userid blank and enter "admin" for the password.  Newer LinkSys routers default to "admin" for both the userid and password.
  2. Once you are logged into the router: 
    1. Click on the "Setup" link
    2. Click on the "DDNS" link
    3. Select DynDNS.org from the DDNS Service drop down box
