    Actual Firmware does not support the wildcard option of DDNS.
    As a workaround i've modified a cron triggert bash script solution
    on a linux system named dynip-0.4 working on UNIX Systems.

    Just change the following script lines in ipdetect.sh from:

    export DYNIP_ADDR=$(IFS="$IFS/";
    ip addr show eth0 |
    while read x y z; do [ $x == inet ] && echo $y; done)

    to (replace yourhost.dyndns.org with your ddns domain):

    export DYNIP_ADDR=$(host yourhost.dyndns.org | while read w x y z; do echo $z; done)

    and activate DDNS Option in your Linksys Router.
