Hi,

I have a 7390 Fritzbox and have a Astrill subscription. I want to run my Roku from the fritz over VPN. There is an option to select a LAN port to tunnel. Does anyone know how to set this up. Cant get it going to save myself. I am tired of using junk DNS services that are over priced and i still get 10Mbp/s offshore unlike astrill i get 40Mbp/s offshore.
Suggestions?
Firmware 6.06

You're a clever man, grab a Mikrotik and never look back.

The VPN facilities on the Fritz are crappy at best. They pretty much took the standards and smashed them in to a GUI that made it easy for stupid people to set up VPNs. Makes it hard to set up a normal VPN for normal people.

I thought Astrill used OpenVPN?

I want to run a VPN off the LAN port and not anything else for Roku. Can a Mikrotik do this or @networkn's amazing ZyXel? I think AVM thought way to hard about making a simple technology like a VPN so difficult and adding in junk like Fritz to Fritz VPN etc.

It's just source based routing. You can route to different sources based on IP. So you could just send all traffic from the Roly through the VPN interface.
Mikrotik RB951 is cheap as chips and has a wireless radio in it if you want built in WiFi too
Zyxel wouldn't be in the same league as Mikrotik.

I decided to give up on trying to make the Roku work.
I will get a WD Live TV as you can set DNS at device level.

In regards to the Roku, I have set up a few of them for people and just use Unotelly's DNS. They even have a NZ server, only 15ms away from me in Palmerston North. Works quite well and had no problems with all the main channels on the Roku.

Nopeeee

Cause you cant watch local on demand unless you sacrifice US channels to enable it.
