    @tipstir:
    I haven't tried this myself but guessed one might be able to bridge a netgear (or other dyn dns supported router) to a 2wire router and use it instead of requiring the client tool running on a computer.

    Again, i haven't tried this myself but found several threads where people seem to have gotten this to work (at least based on skimming the thread)

    If you need help let us know...

    so your first task should be connecting to your isy-99 over the internet while still using your WAN IP address

    /* edit */
    So i guess i should ask:
    > Do you know how to login to your 2wire?
    > Open the correct fire wall ports. (and do you know which ports are needed?)
    > And do you know how to port forward on the 2wire?

    I have it all synced but I just have to figure out how to do the port forward for it.

    Hang on... i'll download the 2wire manual and give you the download link so we (and anyone else on the thread) can look at same manual together

    Man, you're too kind. I feel kind of lazy for this. Thanks.

    I have done port forwarding with it before I just need to figure out how to do it with this. I don't do it very often so it is always an adventure when I try to do it again.

    What a LOUSY ATT support site! Took forever to try and find a user manual download and they don't even list that model for download - tho i know it exists! Grrrr....

    Maybe you can check to see if it's still current.. or where the heck a manual is for it.. Sorry.. i can look around again probably tomorrow but maybe you can find the info on instructions/manual for that router from them and post back here

    OK.. I'll look some more. But in addition to port forwarding and opening ports on the 2Wire you also need assigning your ISY-99 a static IP address (i.e. an address you know you can rely on - a permanent LAN address on your network - before you setup port forwarding)

    I found ISY-99 setup here

    I also found another product describe port forwarding for the 2Wire

    Unless you know how to tell the ISY-99 how to request a static IP then suggest first need to figure out how to reserve IP addresses in the 2wire and THEN can port forward to it and make sure firewall ports are open

    I have the isy setup as far as I know. I have found it several times but the ip keeps changing. That is why dyndns.

    What port do I use? Not sure there.

    I got it I think but I had to shut off the firewall to get it. Now I have to remember how to do exceptions.

    I got the exception to work in the firewall. Now to see if I can use my dnydns account.

    Ok, now how do I work out checking out my isy. What steps do I need to take? I will go to the site and read but you explain it much better.

    Ok, I think I am getting it. If I want to get to my isy I put in my username plus dnsdojo etc. and then the isy port # after the : I got into my isy. I did not need to do another open port to get it to work or did I have to go and open port 80 to get it to work to go into my isy port that was setup? I am not sure.

    Oh! I now see you've been working on this...

    1. Instead of all the multiple, consecutive posts, is better if you click Edit button to edit your last post then write
    /* edit 1 */ or /* edit 2 */ etc. followed by the new information you want to add

    2. I'll look on things tomorrow when i can

    3. Just thought you might find this as funny as i did

    On ATT Site FAQ:
    Where can I get more help for 2Wire Home Networking?
    Additional support for 2Wire Home Networking cna be found online at the 2Wire Support Site.​

    On 2Wire Site
    Then when you look at the 2Wire Support site, of course, they tell you all support and manuals come from your DSL supplier! LOL :haha:

    g'nite ZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    Yeah, I looked back at that and it is not easy to follow. I just get a little anxious is all.

    Hi!

    Thought i'd check to see where things stand before i looked further. If you haven't had success connecting to the isy-99 yet i'd advise start by first proving you connect through to a target computer using its telnet port (port #23)

    Make sure telnet service is running on the target computer
    > Click Start->Run, enter services.msc
    > Scroll to Telnet. Make sure it's StartupType= Automatic
    ===> If need be, rt click Properties and change its startup type=Automatic. Then Reboot

    Now from local computer open a command prompt window
    >> For XP per below, syntax a bit different for Vista and Win 7
    > Start->Run, enter cmd then copy/paste the command line to prove it connects using target's local ip address
    telnet xx.xx.xx.xx
    > Then try it again using the dns hostname
    telnet dnshostname

    Then try telnet again using dnshostname while outside your local network when you can try it
