I cannot access DVR cameras using wireless broadband from outside network. while I can access it from the network wirelessly.
i have read near to 50 posts about this.. yes gone thru the wiki too.. SO I can't figure out what when wrong. My conclusion now is either i totally no idea about this.. or blame it on my 3G mobile broadband.
im using this dyndns.org with "mychosenname".homeip.net and got the IP given. I put the IP in my DVR network setup under the DNS.
in my router modem setup, i forwarded the IP port 9000 to the IP of the DVR. I try accessing it from the network, meaning im already connected wirelessly to the network and typing the IP of the DVR, yes i can open it.. and it asked the password to enter it.. using netviewer program.
but once i disconnect from the network and try accessing it with my mobile broadband.. the normal error.. too long bla bla bla.. came out.
so im really puzzled now. Please help anyone. Thanks in advance :)

Your DynDNS hostname must resolve to the WAN IP address of your connection. If that WAN IP is an RFC 1918 address then you cannot run services accessible from the Internet.
So, what are the first 2 numbers of your WAN IP, for example

RotBlitz has already warned you about using comments - if you do so we may never know you posted.
For the WAN IP, open up the web based administration pages of your 3G router and find the status page, or whatever page shows the WAN IP.

"I put the IP in my DVR network setup under the DNS."
That would be unnecessary if not wrong and is unrelated to your problem. Setting a non-DNS server IP address as DNS server IP address may lead to your DVR malfunctioning.
If you mean by "I try accessing it from the network" that you were able to access your DVR from within the same network (LAN), then this is a good proof that it works from within your LAN and a prerequisite for working at all.
Did you specify the port 9000 too when trying to access the DVR from outside? Btw, wireless or wired is generally of no relevance, and also 3G should not be a problem if it is the client network to be used to reach your non-3G network unless one of the ISPs has blocked port 9000. Also, does your router/modem show a non-private IP address? If it shows a private IP address, you are pretty out of luck.
Best is to start thoroughly working through this guide to sort out your issue.
Do not respond with a comment. This has no reliable notification.
i believe no one knows about this??? cannot be right :D
Sorry, I don't understand what you mean by this. Everything is documented very well.
