    I have a dyndns.org account, I have set my domain to use myusername.dyndns.org as its name sever. I dont want to run the DNS server on my computer and was wondering if I can do it using the router?

    So when you type in mydomain.com it will contact the router which will say the domain's ip is my routers ip. Basically mydomain.com will point to my local server, while using dyndns.org since my IP is dynamic. Is this possible? If not any other way this can be achieved? Thanks!

    Yes this is possible, im not sure if the default linksys firmware supports this so what model of router do you have. i'll attach a screenshot of DD-WRT and how you set it up with that firmware.

    Since you have the account setup already its pretty obvious how to configure the router. if you have a WRT54gv1 to v4 or WRT54GL you can use any DD firmware, if you have the v6 you will need the dd-wrt micro. There are other firmwares that support this as well

    Let us know what model and version of router you are using

    Model : WRT54GS v4
    Firmware : v4.71.1, Hyperwrt 2.1b1 + Thibor15c

    I couldn't find bind installed on the router's firmware, assuming Thibor15c doesn't come with it compiled. I want to host my domain but cant since my IP is dynamic, so this is worth a shot =o). Thanks for the reply, much appreciated.

    It comes as part of the package, under the Setup Option, there is a tab labelled DDNS, like DD-WRT, and is easy to configure

    I have already used that to setup my dyndns.org account, what I am trying to do is set my domain example.com to use username.dyndns.org port 53 as its nameserver. So when YOU type in example.com it will contact the router which will provide the correct DNS to for example.com which should be username.dyndns.org port 80 so I can run my own DNS server and HTTP server for my domain example.com
