Hi, please bear with me on this. I have a D-Link modem/router as my main access point, and am running Astrlil app on comps/iPads etc. I have an blu ray player in a separate room with Netflix available (yes i have an a/c). If ethernet from blu ray to a router that has been flashed with DD-WRT with Astrill applet installed which is intern connected to my main D-Link access via a Netcomm Powerplug will the VPN work for the blu ray and not play havoc with the rest of the network. I hope I have explained myself

Unblock-US would be a better option of Netflix is all you want. No point tunelling an entire connection through Astrill.

I would assume somewhere in the dd-wrt gui would be an option to specify authoritave dns servers based on domain. That way only netflix gets proxied and not all your internets.

I used to have US-Unblock but found it a bit flaky. Will delve deeper into the DD-WRT settings to see what options are available, will probably start picking brains in their forum as well. Cheers anyway.

What did you find flaky about unblock-us? I have used it for close to two years now with no problem.

The astrill vpn client on dd-wrt is pretty straight forward from what I understand. You just put your details in, pick a city and thats it. But it will tunnel your entire connection which could be detrimental to your throughput.

I guess, because you have wrt, you could set up the vpn manually and then use NAT rules to route traffic through different interfaces. Would get pretty messy though.
