Dynamic Dns on an Edgewater Edgemarc device

Edgewater Networks makes some decent VOIP routers.  I've used then for some time now in various situations, and always when configuring a network that uses hosted VOIP. One thing that all router manufacturers seem to do (rather poorly) is supply a Dynamic DNS feature.  Edgewater is no exception, since they hard code a few providers, and almost none of them work or are now paid.  I needed to use Name Cheap's excellent Dynamic DNS service. Well it's no secret that Edgewater's VOS is Linux with Busybox providing all the standard shell apps and utilities.  It also has a crontab and wget, so problem 99.9% solved!
