UnBlock-US are also doing the same thing and have a long list. They however have stated the following:

 

Unblock-Us: We have been working very hard to try to come up with solutions for as many different routers as we can, however, it has now become impossible for us to continue trying to fix every single router make and model and firmware version, as this is now taking us away from the day to day issues that we have to address to keep bringing the best possible service we can to you, our subscribers.

 

It is for this reason we have had to make the difficult decision to stop trying to create fixes for routers other than the ones that are listed below.

Thanks for the run down y'all. I'm about to set up my new Roku Streaming stick tonight and I'm guessing I'm going to run into a similar problem. 

Though that's annoying to hear about Huluplus as well, coz that was gonna be my back up service.

Hi Hadyn,

What SmartDNS service will you be/are you using?

You should be OK if you follow the guides - the Unotelly one is especially nice and clear.

Cheers

I was gonna use Unblock-US because I've chatted to them on twitter and they seem to understand my issues with MLB.tv and NFL Gamepass (which work best if you're not from the US)

richierich1968: There is an excellent guide on the Unotelly site which gives instructions for lots of different routers to set up static routes. I did this earlier this evening and now everything is working perfectly.

See http://help.unotelly.com/support/solutions/articles/192836-why-do-i-need-to-block-public-dns

Cheers.


Yeah I use unotelly vs unblockus ...

The Unotelly support guys were absolutely brilliant when I had an issue - was dealing with their Systems Architect and he was working with me via email and Skype to use Wireshark to capture packets to try to resolve it. I'm only on a trial with them at moment, but based on their support I will be using them going forward.

Hi I've just moved from a TCL cable modem to Vodafone VDSL and now have problems with the Netflix clients on my Roku, Sony Bluray, and PS4.  It still works fine on the laptop.  I'm in the process of replacing the Vodafone supplied Huawei with something better.  So I feel your pain :-)

UnoTelly has instructions here http://help.unotelly.com/support/solutions/articles/192836-why-do-i-need-to-block-public-dns

I have read the Unotelly instructions. Naturally the Vodafone HG659 is not listed, so I followed the instructions for TP-LINK.

I entered the 4 static route entries, but afterwards I could still ping the ip addresses.
Tried a router re-boot but no change.

OK before you all laugh I entered for Gateway: 192.168.1.1.
Is that the correct for 'your router IP'.
Should I have entered the 'IPv4 address' (which I wrote down).
The instructions talk about using 'any unreachable IP that the router accepts should work' and give as an example 127.0.0.1 or 192.168.0.253. Should I try one of these?

I used the address of my Asus router, which is 192.168.1.1.

I can't recall what the local IP address of the HG659 is, but it is whatever you use to login to it.

I'll have another go (because I have since deleted them).

It looks like you may have to give Vodafone a call and get a tech to do it, judging by this post on the VF forums https://community.vodafone.co.nz/t5/Modems-home-Wi-Fi/Static-routing-on-HG659/td-p/115634

I have emailed Lon at Vodafone, mainly to ask whether it is absolutely necessary for a tech support person to make the change. I don't understand why, I can see all the fields, but don't know the correct answers to some of them. Surely, they could provide some basic information/help on this site as they did with changing DNS.

I set the appropriate static routes in mine last night, which had the effect of stopping wifi functioning for my children's iPods.  The could connect to the WLAN, but apparently no further.  Removing the routes didn't fix the issue and I ended up restoring the HG659 to it's factory defaults for the fifth time.

I pulled finger and got my Linksys WRT320 running dd-wrt providing a completely separate network  for the Roku and left the HG659 running with out of the box settings.
