alisam: 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.


The local IP address for the HG659, is 192.168.1.1.
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



Thanks for that.


How did you get on?


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.


The reply back was:
... that was true for the older firmware version. You should be able to make changes you need on the current version. If not, let me know.

I will try again this weekend.

HadynGreen: 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.


As it turned out, no I didn't! Roku Streaming Stick worked fine with Netflix on Unblock-US

Good to hear - it makes your day when things go smoothly! Now you can actually sit down and watch your Roku over the weekend rather than fluffing around trying to fix it ;)

So pleased for you.

I don't know why but I cannot get my Roku 3 to play ball.

Any help (please, please, please) would be appreciated.
I have a Huawei HG659 and after Roku made an update, I cannot get Netflix on the Roku box.
Yes, on a Windows 8 laptop, but of no use to me.

What happens exactly when trying to use Netflix? After the latest update to Roku, the 8.8.8.8 DNS was hardcoded into the Netflix channel which is causing issues.

I'm not sure that it is possible to add the static routes to the Huawei to get Netflix working again.  Even with setting the Roku up of a router running dd-wrt I'm having problems with streaming.  Other apps on the Roku are running fine.

And today Netflix is working on the Roku 3.
The only thing I changed was setting the primary DNS Server to the UnoTelly Auckland IP Address (103.6.212.24) [I was using Sydney 103.1.187.68] and powered it off/on.
Not that I think it solved the problem.
So I am none the wiser, but a lot happier.

I couldn't use my roku 3 at all for netflix.
I just fixed it by blocking 8.8.8.8 in the parental controls.
Huawei HG659.

Hey thats a good idea. Will try it out with my Fritzbox by setting up an access profile for the Roku specifically and adding 8.8.8.8 & 8.8.4.4. Will have to see how it goes over the next few days.

Now that my Roku 3 is working I should probably block updates.

Does anyone know what url I should block to prevent my Roku 3 from updating its firmware?

That's a great trick.  Netflix is once again working on my Roku, which makes me happy given that trying a Draytek 2760 turned out to be such a disappointing experience.  I am however still having buffering issues with Netflix on the Roku over VDSL that I didn't have on cable.  I did some testing with a Samsung tablet last night.  It also has buffering issues using just UnoTelly but when I fire up the UnoVPN on it the streaming is constant.  One thing I did notice when I was having buffering issues was that the Internet and WLAN lights on the HG659 would settle into a pattern when they were flashing in unision (Roku is wired).  Not sure what it means tho'.

Interesting. I know of two others who are having similar issues, on Slingshot VDSL. I am on UFB and have no buffering issues, it's been pretty reliable for me.

Blocking 8.8.8.8 is not a complete fix for me. Sometimes it works without problem but much of the time it disconnects from netflix every 5 minutes. The first 25% of the Roku progress bar seems to be a trick - so when there is no buffering the progress bar stops at 25%.

Agreed,

I have given up on Netflix etc. I've gone to using xbmc instead and use the Roku for watching NRL on Livestream which is wonderful.

Is there a livestream app for Roku?

Edit: Just found it.  Wahoo!  No more watching the NRL on my laptop!
