If you are using s dynamic service it would indicate a problem with the settings. If you don't use a dynamic DNS then dynDNS should be disabled.

If you don't have a dynamic dns service both the IPv4 and IPv6 DynDNS should be set to disabled. If they are set to enabled the error message will be generated.

Re: DynDNS errors in WAN Services

The Ethernet link should not be showing red and saying down if the internet connection is via the Modem's Red WAN port. The modem has switched to 4G backup.

 

What type of connection do you have (FTTP, FTTC, NBN Fixed radio, NBN HFC or Telstra cable)?

PING ms

is the correct speed for an ADSL link.
