Where do I enter the information to update the routers external ip address at DynDNS.org?

I have the 2Wire 3800HGV-B router now and looking for the page to enter DynDNS.org information so they always have my correct external IP address updated and clients can get their files.  It's always been a part of the WAN setup on all the routers I've used in the past but I can't find it on this one.  Would somebody pls tell me where it's located?  Thanks

The U-verse Residential Gateways (RG) have no way to register DynDNS information.  OTOH, there's little need because your "dynamic" IP address will almost never change.

 

If you're bound and determined, then you'll need to get your own router, install it behind the RG in DMZplus mode, and then set up the DynDNS information in it.

This is Uverse equipment,  unfortunately it will not have a lot of the standard and extended capabilities of a real router that you purchase.  You would have to see if you could put the Uverse gateway in a bridge mode and hopefully make it act like a plain modem, then connect a real router to it where you can configure stuff like DynDNS and port forwarding, etc.

 


These are commercial Residential Gateways, not modems or routers.  Designed for Uverse triple play: Uvoice, TV and Internet.  They do provide port forwarding, gaming access, Nat control, etc.  Also have DMZ plus zone and IP Passthrough for router/device behind gateway use.

 

ATT DNS can be bypassed by placing another DNS address in any computer/device in many cases providing better routing. 😉
