A cable/DSL router or dialup access point can cost hundreds of dollars and still be extremely difficult to configure. The last thing you need is denied server access when you need it most. Instead of paying a large sum of cash for a hassle-in-a-box, take control by transforming one of your computers into a router with DDNS.
How, you ask? By following these simple steps with No-IP.
Using DDNS will allow the updater to seamlessly report IP changes to No-IP as they occur, rather than having downtime waiting for the next time your updater reports the new IP. This eliminates server access issues. The best part? It’s completely affordable. For the cost of only an additional Ethernet card and a bit of your spare time, you can have a cable/DSL/dialup router set up for your network with the ability to run servers that are completely accessible from both the internet and the internal network.
