DIR-605L - making DDNS work
« on: May 30, 2012, 08:58:20 AM »

 Hi Everyone,

Sorry I can't find a DIR-605L forum, so I am posting here (605 and 655 are pretty close...at least share 2 digits)
I would really appreciate your help.  I have spent hours looking for a solution, but I am really stuck here. 

The goal is to be able to access an IP Cam at home from the internet.  In order to do so I I need to do a DDNS.

Here is the system I have:
- Router DIR-605L (Hardware version: A1, Firmware: 1.11 (CN)  )
- Region:  China
- ISP: cable modem - the modem model is Yitong Technology YTMC-51N2-0
- Dynamic IP (I think)

I have not being able to get a "success" or "connected" status on the DDNS router page. 

Here is what I have done:
Once I signed up to a DDNS account through dlinkddns.com.cn, I added a host.
The browser IP shown is something like this(using * to cross out the real number):  111.161.**.122
Then I need to enter the "New IP Address." As far as I understand, it is my external IP, which should be the browser IP shown. 
So i added a new host with the browser IP.    But it did not work when I try to set up the connection in my dlink roueter.

Specific questions:
1. What is my external IP?
I also tried some outside website to see what my ip is - none of them are close to the ip # shown in the dlinkddns browser IP.  Worst of all, some of them gave me different ip's.  (www.whatismyip.com gives different ones such as  http://www.thisip.org/  and sometimes they gave the same ones...)
ipconfig /all under cmd also doesn't reveal anything helpful

2. If the confusion in IP is caused by my modem serving as a router, how do I turn it to bridge mode?  There is no IP address to go to and the company's website has nothing on it.   How do I know if it's this that's causing the problem?

Also all my Dlink setup is in Chinese (which I am not as familiar with) but I intend to keep it that way since it can access the dlinkddns China server which is super important.   Some of the stuff that's mentioned on the forum I have a difficult time finding b/c translation issue.  So if you can, please be clear on what tab to click and where to look for the info.

Thank you very much for your help.  I have been spending an hour or so on this problem for 2 weeks straight, it's getting to a point where I am thinking about getting a different router to see if that helps (The thinking behind it is the router has too many security features that "disguise" my real IP.  I know it sounds funny, but what can I do?)

Thanks in advance

ipconfig /all under cmd also doesn't reveal anything helpful You can see what your IP address is on the 605 router under Status/Device Info/WAN section. However this may only reveal the IP address comming from the private LAN from the host modem if it has a built in router.

2. If the confusion in IP is caused by my modem serving as a router, how do I turn it to bridge mode?  There is no IP address to go to and the company's website has nothing on it.   How do I know if it's this that's causing the problem? You would need to contact the Mfr or ISP to have them help you bridge the modem or purchase a modem with out a built in router.

Thank you FurryNutz.

So I guess having the modem serving as a router will really cause the described IP problem...I see an IP from the WAN section under DIR-605L setup but it is different from either the dlinkddns.com.cn "browser IP" nor the available finding ip sites that's out there.

Will see if I can get any info from the ISP/Mfr.

If there is a 192.168.0.# address in the WAN IP address field, then the modem is not bridged.

ISP/modem mfr was not helpful at all.

I did check - there is NO 192.168.0.# address in the WAN IP address field.

Then I am really confused on how I can't seem to find my IP - the ip shown in WAN section is different with external sites (such as whatismyip.com) and it's totally different than the browser IP shown in dlinkddns.com.cn

Any idea of what I am missing here??

Thank you.
