Hello, everyone. I was trying to set up DDNS on my RT-N66U (Firmware: 3.0.0.3.162), but I can't get it to register properly. If I go to WAN->DDNS with www.asus.com as the server, no matter what host name I enter, I get an "Invalid IP Address!" error. I am not really sure of what I am doing wrong. Could you guys help me out. :P Also, I get the same error if I attempt this feat with AiDisk.

Make sure your WAN interface shows your public IP, and not some internal IP that might be returned if you use a modem that's also acting as a router. Compare what you have on the router's initial page when clicking on Internet Status versus what's returned by http://www.whatismyip.com/ .

Thank you so much! This was my exactly my problem. My Cable Modem (which is a Router as well) was assigning my Asus Router a local network IP. I just changed the Modem to work on bridged mode and now everything is working just fine. Thanks again!

If the first page of the Asus router does not show this IP, then it means your modem is configured as a router.  You will have to contact your ISP to ask them if it's possible to put the modem in bridged mode, or to at least disable the router functionalities of their modem.  I can't help you any further than that, because every modem is different.>
