This blog post tells you how to configure dynamic DNS (using dyndns.org) on your router running OpenWRT Kamikaze. The instructions havene be tested on a Linksys WRT54GL running OpenWRT Kamikaze (r14417).
Go to the menu System / Software. If you don't see package descriptions, click on the link Update package lists. Make sure you don't have the obsolete packages updatedd or ipupdate or ez-ipupdate. (You'll still find some old, obsolete forum posts recommending them on the net.) Install package luci-app-ddns.
Reboot (power-cycle) the router, or run rm -rf /var/luci-* in the SSH prompt. Without this step, the menu Services / Dynamic DNS doesn't appear.
Go to the menu Services / Dynamic DNS. Adjust your settings. The package supports dyndns.org, changeip.com, zoneedit.com, no-ip.com, and freedns.afraid.org . Please note that if you specify a force update interval less then 28 hours (the default is 72 hours), then dyndns.org will ban you. Click on the button Save & Apply.
Reboot (power-cycle) the router, or run INTERFACE=wan ACTION=ifup sh /etc/hotplug.d/iface/25-ddns in the SSH prompt. Without this step, the updater daemon script (/bin/sh /usr/lib/ddns/dynamic_dns_updater.sh myddns 0) is not started. This script sends the IP address update to the dynamic DNS provider. Wait a few minutes for the DNS update to take effect, then try to ping your new host name.
