Evening all,

Have finally upgraded to Unlimited VDSL so I could give Netflix a go.... But the two Roku Streaming Sticks I have in the bedroom are not showing Netflix as an option now.
I have found this is because of the Google DNS.

I have tried to go into the Parental Control and blocked 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 but still nothing.

So then I thought to give unotelly a go, to see if it was a geo lock, but can't find the DNS settings in the router to change.

Has anyone got this working??

From the forums I can see I could do it if the Roku did it's own DNS, but it depends on the Router.

Is there a way to do it, or should I just buy a new router that will work?

Thanks, have been able to find the password for the super user on the router, and also found since I had my Roku account set up before I set up unotelly, I had to create a new account as Roku thought I was in the U.S.

Thanks for your help

instead of parental locking the google DNS, as this doesn't always work for DNS requests.

can you try routing rules to send to router instead of 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4.
do the same for  208.67.222.22, 208.67.220.220, 209.244.0.4 and 209.244.0.3
