Re: [Internet] Fibe 50/50 + Fibe TV - How to add my own router i

said by SpykeYs:

The reason I want to use my own router is to be able to use VPN on my router in order to use NETFlix USA...

Thanks again!!

If US Netflix is the ONLY reason to want vpn access, there are other ways to get the US netflix without using a true VPN.

I have a sagemcom and with the use of custom DNS entries, which the sagemcom allows us to manually set for the wan IP, I can access the US netflix servers.

Your likely paying a vpn provider for a US IP. The service I use is pay also, about 5 dollars a month iirc. Also has a free 1 week trial - no billing info required.

google 'Unblock Us'

HOWEVER

If your using the VPN for other purposes like a lot of people do, ie torrenting, this will not provide for same types of privacy there.

So, if Netlfix is your only use, you could skip the asus rt-n66u and just go with sagemcom -> switch.

To use a service like unblock-us don't you need to disable dns forwarding by the Sagecom and enter those two custom dns #'s? If you do that then FibeTV doesn't work. For example, you can't disable the DHCP server on your Sagecom without the TV's losing service, even if you have a DHCP server on your LAN. So, how are you managing to use custom DNS's on devices such as a Roku which won't allow you to set the DNS #'s?

With Fibe DSL ( not FibeTV) you could either disable the DHCP server or enter custom DNS #'s into the Sagecom and disable DNS forwarding. If DNS forwarding and DHCP are on then your devices will occasionally get the Bell DNS ip's.

It's all confusing...
