Hi all, I have spent many hours following multiple websites advise but no joy.

I have my main telecom VDSL router with Uno Telly DNS loaded via Telent.

I then have another router coming off that which has DD WRT loaded. Have been trying to connect iPad and chrome cast to this router so I can watch UK TV. Issue is Chromecast continues to know I'm not in the UK. I have left basic setting on auto. Tried the commands at in admin section.

Any tips would be really really celebrated.

Cheers

Static routing: make 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 on the router with the chromecast wifi network point to your router with the unotelly dns. Use subnet 255.255.255.255 on both.

You only want DHCP running on one of your routers, (this assumes that your 2nd router is connected by a LAN port to your VDSL router) Also I think the Google DNS servers have replicas all over the world as they use anycast addresses.

I tend to use proxy servers for devices that need to appear geo located in the UK but I'm lucky in this regards as I have access to kit in the UK.

Might be firing a few questions your way in the near future.

Sounds like your DDWRT router is giving your clients other DNS servers via DHCP.

You can check by opening a command prompt window and typing "ipconfig /all" and looking under "DNS Servers"

 

Mark is right, disable DHCP on DDWRT and see how you go

Hi - not sure if you solved your problem but have a read through of this:

http://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=66&topicid=153506

I had a similar issue with Chromecast and PS3 for running Netflix. I am with Unotelly also and used their IP tables command on the DD-WRT Router.

Have a look and if you you need to ask for any extra info let me know.

Certain apps - namely Netflix now have forced Google DNS look up, so static routes don't work. I got a DD-WRT compatible router and loaded Unotell ip table rules.
