Hi there.

I am about to sign up for Telecom to get the EPL special (in August), and am wanting to run a VPN through Astrill.  Bascially I want to be able to :

    1. Use DD-RWT for increased wireless speed

    2. Use VPN for increased security

    3. Access Iplayer UK etc with no geoblock

    4. Have a dual channel DD-RWT / Astrill compatible router with good wireless speeds

Any suggestions to which Router would suit my needs (and should I be nervous about flashing it!).  I plan on streaming alot of TV from my Imac to my main TV, hence the need for the dual channels.

I am planning on using the supplied modem from Telecom.

Thanks so much

I don't believe the current modems Telecom are supplying can work in bridge mode so immediately when you add another router behind this you'll have double NAT occuring, which you want to avoid.

If you want to use a router with DD-WRT I'd recommend buying a Draytek DV120 to use as your modem.

If it is just iPlayer you are after then why not just use Ublock-US or Unotelly?
