Hi all,

I recently moved to Asia from NZ. I've set myself up with a US VPN to view Netflix/Hulu, but I want to be able to do it without having to connect my (Apple) laptop to the TV. So what I think I need is:

- A device that plugs into my existing router (I can't configure a VPN on my existing router).
- Create a VPN on the device
- Browse on this device so I see navigate to Netflix
- Connect this device (with cable or wirelessly) to the TV

Any ideas??? I had through a PS3 or Xbox might do the job, but I can't configure VPN.

If it came with storage even better!

Thanks for your help

Buy a Wi-Fi router where you can load either DD-WRT or Tomato firmware on it. I use Asus RT-N16 with tomato but there are few other Wi-Fi routers like Linksys WRT-54GL which also support either firmware. DD-WRT is prob better in your case as it's much easier to configure VPN on it and chances are your VPN provider most prob has a setup guide written for DD-WRT. I use Astrill for VPN but there are some other good one's like Witopia, Strong VPN etc.

You can also use a DNS based service like unblock-us which works very nicely with Xbox 360 or PS3 or even the Apple TV hardware.

Do whatever you want to do man.
