Hi All,

I have tried to search for an answer prior to posting & could only find this thread in Geekzone which doesn't quite match my situation.

Prior to yesterday I was running a Netgear N600 WiFi Router on Vodafone ADSL on an iMac. Also through 2 of the LAN ports of the Router were connected a WDLiveTV & an AppleTV. These were patched using Cat6 they were not operating on WiFi.  I was utilizing Unblock US to watch Netflix on either of the WDLive TV or AppleTV as well as using WiFi for 2 iPads which have Netflix, NBC & CBS Apps on them.

Yesterday I changed to Vodafone VDSL and even though I logged into the new Huawei router and changed the DNS settings I no longer can access Netflix.

I also read within Geekzone that you should only change the DNS settings on the equipment you are using not the Router itself. I tried to do this on the iPad, but it did not work. It lost all other settings ie IP Subnetmask etc.

The thread I referred to at the start has a member stating that using Unotelly works.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Regards

Under internet edit the WAN connection for VDSL. Specify manual DNS settings.
Works 100% OK with my Hg659.

Well, when I got home from work I went to Unblock Us web site and saw a message saying I had a new connection. I clicked a button and now everything is working as it was.

Thanks TimA for your help.
