How will I know if my router supports this? I have a 2wire 1701HG. Do you know anything about this?Dynamic DNS is a method of getting around the issue of not having a static IP to pin against a domain name. How dynamic DNS works is one of two ways. If you have a router/firewall which supports dynamic DNS, all you have to do is configure the router/firewall with your account specifics. If the router/firewall sees a change in your dynamic IP address from your ISP, the router/firewall will launch a connection to your dynamic DNS service and update your registration with the new IP address. Obviously, this is the best setup to have as changes are near instantaneous. The drawback is if you have a dynamic DNS service which is not supported by the built in client on your router/firewall.
