i am hoping to sign up to a VPN service like StrongVPN.
I read that you need a specific VPN router, like one in this link, for the VPN service to work, or else - will not work if just subscribe to the VPN service.
My query is :
Using a VPN router from StrongVPN with or without D-Link RG DVG-N5402SP ??
ask for open ONT from Starhub first, and plug the VPN router, eg. ASUS RT-N66 - DIRECT to the ONT ??
Connect via the D-Link RG DVG-N5402SP ? -
- will it make the connection slower ?
Apologies in advance - Noobie question - search all the threads - no one addressed this specifically.
Thanks in advance.
I know I am a little late to the party here, but I am looking to do something similar in my home...
I currently subscribe to Starhub Fibre Optic broadband and use the modem and D-Link RG DVG-N5402SP router.
I also subscribe to a VPN.
What I would like to do is (ideally) have TWO wireless connections in my home: #1 would be the standard Starhub service while #2 would be a permanent VPN connection. This would mean that my Apple TV could be permanently connected to the VPN connection and stream US content like Netflix, etc. I believe this is possible by adding a VPN router as a second device to my Starhub connection.
However, I am not very experienced with this and I am having a very difficult time understanding exactly *how* to do this. I called Starhub but the techinician didn't really seem to understand my questions/objective.
Is it possible to simply purchase a VPN router and connect it to my Starhub fibre optic modem -- basically "bridging" it? Or do I need to add another data point in my home in order to achieve this type of configuration?
Any insight or assistance is appreciated.
Thank you very much.
