Before I sign up with Dyn.com I’m trying to gather more information on Dynamic IP
I have Cisco Linksys E2000 router and in DDNS section I see two options Dyn and TZO, TZO is very expensive, I’m leaning towards Dyn option.
The question that I have did any one tried Dyn with Cisco Linksys E2000 router, my IP address changes every two to three days. Did anyone have any issues with Dyn and Linksys E2000? How often this update happens? I don’t want to use Windows Client update because of IP Security Camera. I don’t want to leave my computer on all time, so that’s the reason I would prefer Router to update this IP address.

Unfortunately your router is known to have issues when working with DynDNS. It would be better to use an Update Client [known to work]. However, you may still try to use it at your own risk of your hostname being blocked due to abusive updates.
Also, check if your camera has a built-in update client as many have. You may want to use this instead of the router.
Alternatively, flash your router with another firmware like DD-WRT which is known to work with DynDNS.: http://www.dyndnscommunity.com/questions/4163/update-clients-known-to-work-with-dyndnscom.html

Thank you for the suggestions.
I'm using [Foscam FI8910W camera] it has DDNS option, i will be installing 4 cameras around the house. I would rather my router to update this IP instead of camera.
I was afraid to flush my router, didn't want to brick the router. But i will give it try to see how this firmware upgrade comes along.: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B006ZP8UOW/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00
