Hi there.
I understand you can't give support for my router!

What I'm looking for is confirmation that my settings are right.

I have D-Link router (DIR-859 - FW:1.04) and want to setup the Dynamic DNS update.

The settings I have configured are as follows - could you confirm I have the right info here because it can't seem to connect:
- Type: Manual
- Server Address: api.dynu.com
- Host Name: [mydomain].com
- User Name : [user ID I use to connect to http://www.dynu.com]
- Password : [Password that goes with the above account]
- Time out : 24 hours

Whenever I save the settings, it tells me it is "disconnected". I checked the "Last update" from the Dynamic DNS Service page on your site, but it doesn't seem to update.

Thanks for your help!

The settings are correct but please make sure that you are using ol*********mx as username instead of your email address.

Ho Owen.
No, I didn't have any fix - the config is right as per support, but the router doesn't work with these settings.
If you ever figure it out, please leave a reply here.
thanks!

Hi Olivier
No.......I've beat my brains out, changing everything I can think of, but still nothing !

Don't know if there's any connection, but Dynu's port check gives a fail message....again I've tried changing everything I can think of, but no joy.

OK....don't expect Dynu to know every model of router, but this one is quite recent & works perfectly in every other way.

I'll try Dynu support again & see if I can get something more intelligent than "The settings are correct but please make sure that you are using ol*********mx as username instead of your email address.......whatever that means....!!!!!
