    Hi, do you think that it would be possible to change the format of the DDNS page so that the user can input their own server details instead of having to select from the predefined list. I don't use No-Ip or any of the others listed. I am a home user and cost is paramount so the DDNS provider I have isn't listed, but the cost suits my budget. I use a DSL-N66U which I have updated to your latest firmware which I find excellent. Keep up the good work!

    Merlin doesn't provide firmware for the DSL- routers so I don't know what firmware you think you're using. He also dropped support for the RT-N66U a long time ago.

    I use the ASUS one and it seems fine. Anything better I should be using in the drop down on the Merlin FW?

    Custom config files are the proper way of handling unsupported DDNS providers. It can't realistically be done through the webui since every provider has its own unique requirements, it's not just a matter of pointing at a different server address.

    I have used asuscomm.com for 5 years; thankfully I’ve not had that many problems, but every single one was my own fault. I have therefore found it 100% reliable, and simple to set up, too.
