    This comes already with a Netgear router with LPC enabled.  However MAC addresses are not part of the standard DNS protocol, so cannot normally be used.

    "with dynamic ip address, on a wireless router, its hard to update ip address every time it changes."

    It seems you mix things up.  What is dynamic IP address to do with wireless?  Or what else do you want to tell us with this?

    Thank you for your response. now I am saying is I am using a adsl wireless router 'zte zxv10 w300'. There are multiple users in this network including children. So every time I restart the router it assigns a new IP address. so every time I'm not on a computer to update the IP address. This router cannot change DDNS provider. Im saying is if I could register a network using routers MAC address instead of IP address we can maintain a filter settings without changing. It will be very helpful to dynamic IP address users. (sorry fro bad English)

    As said, MAC addresses are not part of the DNS protocol, so cannot be used except for things like a Netgear router with LPC which has a special proprietary DNS protocol implemented.  For the other OpenDNS versions this is what the updaters are good for.

    "I am saying is I am using a adsl wireless router"

    From a networking perspective it doesn't matter if the traffic goes via cable or via radio waves.  It's just another carrier.  The function and signals are the same.  That said, it is irrelevant if the (internal, private) traffic is wired or wireless in relation to a public dynamic IP address.

    "I am using a adsl wireless router 'zte zxv10 w300'."

    You may be able to configure this as an Updater.  See http://screenshots.portforward.com/routers/ZTE/ZXV10_W300/GNU_DDNS.htm

    First visit https://www.dnsomatic.com/ and login with your OpenDNS credentials.  Then configure OpenDNS as a service.  Now configure your router:

    • DDNS enabled:  Check
    • DDNS Provider:  DNS-O-Matic
    • DDNS Username:  your e-mail address registered with OpenDNS
    • DDNS Password:  your OpenDNS password
    • DDNS Domain Name:  updates.dnsomatic.com
    • DDNS Host Name:  all.dnsomatic.com

    "I think its another firmware."

    This could well be the case.  Then you may want to flash your router with this firmware?
