I had a similar setup on a cable modem a few months
back. I'm not sure how your setup works now, but I'd
be willing to bet that you could simply plug your
current server into your router, set up port
forwarding, and that would be that. All of the dynamic
IP updaters I've ever seen don't use your computer's
internal IP address. Rather, they go out to the
internet and get your address from a webpage
somewhere, and use that value to send to your DNS
provider. Therefore, you shouldn't need to change
anything, doing what you want is simple.
