I have a Digital Video Recorder that monitors Survielance cameras. It has the ability to stream over the internet.

I also have a Speedtouch 553 ADSL MOdem and a Linksys BEFSR41 Router.

The reason I chose the router is that it has dydns built in to resolve the external ip adress which is dynamic without the need for a computer.

My problem is that the linksys resolves the IP as and as a result the built in dyndns resolves the ip to be

I would connect the linksys directly but the primitive ADSL technology here only allows for PPOA and no PPOE.

Is there any way to tell the speedtouch modem to pass the public internet ip address to the linksys? or any way to let the linksys router's dyndns see the public ip address?

Thank you very much in advance for your help.
