Hi, we're in a remote area of Spain w/o fixed ADSL lines. We can only use 3G or long distance wifi internet connections. Our new provider who offers very good network coverage doesn't support DDSN client within their router. We can't use another router since it's integrated in their antenna we have on our roof. It's a Mikro Tik router board. How can I still access to our cameras?

The MikroTik certainly supports DynDNS updates - I know because that's what I use.
You'll find a number of good scripts in their forums and Wiki, depending on what version of RouterOS you're running. On RouterOS v4 I'm using the following:
Note that it doesn't handle the inactivity timeout, since I have a paid account and it doesn't matter to me. Adding that however should be pretty easy.
Most routers expect to be the WAN connected device, so will generally fail to update correctly. If you were to use a router running DD-WRT then you'd probably be ok, since it's default client uses web based detection.
