In Part 1 we setup our Dynamic Domain with DynDNS. In this post I'll show you how to configure your Linksys router with the information from DynDNS.

Login to your Linksys by opening Internet Explorer and trying in the IP address of your router in the address bar nd click go or press enter. The default IP address of most Linksys router will be 192.168.1.1. You'll be prompted to enter a "Username" and "Password". The default credentials for a Linksys router is Username = [blank] and Password = admin. You'll then see the following screen.


linksys_setup

Click on the menu item "DDNS". You'll then be taken to the Dynamic DNS configuration page on your Linksys router. Your screen should now look like this

linksys_ddns

By default (1) the DDNS Service will be "Disable".  Click on the dropdown and select DynDNS.org. (2) Enter the username you created when signing up for the account on DynDNS.com website. (3) Enter the password you provided when signing up for the account on DynDNS.com website. The Linksys router will use these credentials to automatically login to the account. (4) Enter the domain name you configured in the Dynamic DNS section at DynDNS.com. This will be yourhostname.dyndns.org and click on the 'Save Changes" button. You should see the following message at the bottom of the screen (in red) DDNS is updated successfully.


linksys_ddns_2


That's it! You've now successfully configured your Linksys WRT54G router for Dynamic IP with DynDNS.com service. Anyone can now reach the router /domain name you configured in the Dynamic DNS section at DynDNS.com. This will be yourhostname.dyndns.org. I hope you find this post helpful.

Hi Anil,
Make sure that your account is correctly setup with DynDNS. Try using "nslookup" to verify that the correct IP is given to DynDNS.

START>PROGRAMS>ACCESSORIES>COMMAND PROMPT

Then type

nslookup myname.dyndns.org

You should see the same IP address which should be listed in your router status page.

Hi Murtuza,
To access the internal network from outside, you'll have to create the acces rules on your router. I am not familiar with that model router. You could follow this link

http://www.draytek.co.uk/support/kb_vigor_portforwarding.html

and see if this helps. This shows how to setup port-forwarding on a DrayTek router. Let me know if this helps!

Thanks

So what if I have registered for multiple host names at DynDNS.org?
e.g. myhostA.dyndns.org and myhostB.dyndns.org

Can I enter multiple host names into the field labeled (4) in the screen shot?
I have tried separating each host name with comma, semicolon, colon, and even -a, but only the first host name actually works when I point my browser to it, the second one gives "Page not found". Same result if I reverse the order.

I am not able to connect to my office router (linksys wrt54g) from outside. i have configured ddns in router but cannot to public ip even from office or from outside. it is connecting fine to 192.168.1.1. what can be the issued to look into

@Vinod - You need to setup the proper forwarding (NAT) in the router. That basically means that you need to open the correct port(s) on your router. How are you accessing it internally? http://192.168.1.1? Are you trying to access the router from the outside? or a security camera?

If you are trying to access the router from the outside then you have to into the router settings page and enable remote administration. Go to the "Adminstration" page and select remote manegement. Set the port (default port is 8081 0r 8080). Then to access from outside you go to myname.dyndns.org:8081

Hello,

Regarding to the question on supporting multiple host names on linksys router, is there any solution or it is possible? I have planned to have multiple domain names pointing to a web server.

Refer to Lyle's post on 9-Dec-2009, he has tried different syntax. How's about the current status?

Regards,
Patrick

It is good that you posted default password for the Linksys WRT54G Router. It is always a problem for users to figure out right default password after they reset their router.

Trouble connecting to webcam from external source. Have setup as follows.
Motorola modem using comcast
linksys wrt54g
voip
foscam wireless ip cam
wiring is as follows
modem to voip ethernet
voip to router ethernet
router to pc (xp) ethernet

Signed up to dyndns but cannot connect. also checked with port tool and port opened for web cam not open.


For router it seems I need to
1. enable dns
2. allow remote access for the port opened for the camera

Since camera is ip, it has basic net work settings with fixed ip address, gateway and dns server set to internal router address and port selection;camera also has dyndns page and connection "success".

Is the port blocked because remote admin for port not enabled?? Have disabled firewalls and still no access. any other suggestions based on info above.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Good Day, I tried setting up DDNS on my Linksys WRT54G router and I was stuck on the 1st step. After entering the hostname, username and password in the DDNS page and "save settings", the status i got was "No Message"
I skip to port forwarding and enter the necessary and now I am able to access my cctv from the local network. However, when i try from my office, I am unable to. I guess it'a probably due to the error in the DDNS page. Please enlighten me on how to resolve this issue.. Greatly appreciate!!

Dear Saif, I am also having problems connecting my Ip camera from outside. DDNS connection is ok, but xxx.dyndns.org doesnt work. Linksys setup shows internet IP 10.1.1.2, quite strange. nslookup xxx.dyndns.org yields "host unknown Address 10.1.1.1, Not authorization response IP xx.xx.xx.xx and yy.yy.yy.yy".
What is still wrong on setup?

Hi Saif
Thank you for posting your very informative blog, as I am new to using dyndns it is proving invaluable.
My question is which router in your opinion is best for using with dyndns, I intend to use one axis IP camera to enable be to keep an eye on our property.
Also should I require more do you have a premium service that I could pay for via pay pal. ?
Regards
Pat
