    My Netgear DG834G appears to provide such support, from the "Dynamic DNS"
    configuration page, and even has www.DynDNS.org as the default service
    provider. But as I don't use DynDNS myself I don't know how well it works -
    I seem to remember reading of a problem somewhere once but that may have
    been a one off. I have a fixed IP so it's irrelevant to me.

    The Netgear DG814 did this... Don't know about the later models, but might
    be an option... and they do have a couple of Netgear models but there's not
    enough info on their website to know the actual model numbers, to learn the
    fine detail off the specs on the Netgear site, sorry... but there's info to
    the effect you will pay up to 30 quid more for the privilege of not buying
    off the website :-( Peter M.

  4. Hi,

    I tried it out on the DG834G a few months back and it worked well, it'd
    check your IP and update dyndns within a couple of seconds of connecting.
    There were problems with earlier versions of the firmware, but all seems
    to be fine on the latest version.

    With Regards,

    Dave,

    In the older versions it did not work properly but in the later ones
    it does.. with a "BUT": it sniffs its WAN IP address and if that has
    not changed it does not update dyndns, however dyndns want to be
    prodded every 35 days if the IP is the same so they can know you're
    still hanging on, and also to motivate us cheepskates to buy
    something, *anything* off them so that this 35-day reminder is
    removed. This means that if you want it at a proper free price, the
    Netgear itself is not enough since it does not have a "Remind dyndns
    the IP is the same as before and I'm still here" button.

    For this 35-day reminder to be automated, dyndns recommend those
    programs that run on a pee cee instead of router s/w. Just a data
    point.

    Don't understand!! DynDNS *WILL* send email to the registered owner if an
    update has not occured in 35 days and I have always found it trivial to
    login to their site and refresh the free entry this way (or power off and
    on the router).

    The Belkin 7630 supports DynDNS and should be available from PCW.

    The draytek range support this + many other Dynamic DNS services.

    PC world dont stock it though. But many good online retailers do. I buy from
    zionmedia as i get a decent discount for bulk buying all the work gear
    there.
