D-Link Router Standard DNS Update

Question originally posted by user highpeak on on 15 February 2018

My D-Link router has 3 choices for updating DynDNS: Static, Free, Custom. I'm trying to update my Standard DNS hostname with a dynamic IP. I'm using my account username and "short code" as the password. The IP address is not updating when I use Static or Custom.


Any advice would be welcome.

    I'm not familiar with your specific router, so I don't know why it is giving you three options to choose from. If one of the choices allows you to manually enter a server address (custom maybe?) then should be entered there.

    Generally speaking, setup for your device should be along the lines of this:

    -Service: ( DNS/Dyn)

    -Domain: (this isn’t always an option, but this would be the domain of your hostname)

    -Host: (if the host you are updating is a subdomain, like they are in Dynamic DNS Pro, this will be the full hostname).

    -Server Address:

    -Username: Your username

    -Password: Your password or updater client key. You can see if you have generated an updater client key by going to My Account > Account Settings at

    Once those fields are completed, your device should start updating the IP automatically once it changes.

    alternately, you can try using an update client like this on a computer in the network that is ok to be left on 24/7 (so as to not have downtime.)

    If D-Link followed Dyn's API, then any of those four options would be fine, because there are no different APIs for these services.

    What you can do:

    • Perform a manual update via web browser using this update URL:
      <a class="jive-link-external-small" href="" rel="nofollow"></a>
      If you face a problem, then it is likely that the router faces it too.
    • Refer to D-Link support. It is their router and firmware.
