    i created 1 hostname (ddns) in dyndns.org and entered it in DDNS feature of the linksys wag200g. at first, it works. when i ping the hostname, it replies the current WAN IP of the router, but after sometime that the WAN IP changed, i cannot anymore ping the hostname. it replies time-out, meaning the DDNS of the router is not updating the hostname with its new WAN IP.
    i already disabled the Firewall but still, it is not updating the hostname.

    firmware version of router is 1.00.09

    please help :help: :help: :help: any suggestion you have there? any help will be appreciated.

    It sounds like you have a PPoE connection is that correct? There are more issues around dyndns updating and the nature of PPoE type connections that change the WAN IP.

    yes. my connection is PPPoE type. you think updating the firmware of my router will solve the issue or problem is coming from the nature of my connection?
    any solution you can give me?

    I have found that over time, hardware ddns solutions are not reliable regardless of router brand, model or firmware. What I have found to be reliable is the software dyndns.org recommends using, which can be found here after you login:

    Unfortunatley I don't really have much to offer you. If there is an option to enable keep alive then enable that. aside from that I don't know any other options.

    some issues had been corrected since the firmware you have, you should upgrade it.

    the scenario

    actually, i already installed two unit of linksys wag200g in two remote sites here in dubai (uae), and it worked perfectly. but when i installed another router of the same model and firmware (firmware 1.00.09) in oman, i cannot access my server through the hostname i registered in dyndns.org, it seems that the ddns in the router is not updating the ip. when i open my account in dyndns.org, it detects the current IP that the router is detecting, but in the router it is not updating it :frown:

    you think the isp has something to do with this? where can i donwload the latest firmware for this model?

    thanks for all your help!
