No, But I may try my vpn (windscribe) this weekend, especially if it makes any differences to my weird slowdowns. (see other thread)

Sorted this, works great, i just put 123456 as the password in the tunnel setting.

Netflix streams fine now on 4G with the France VPN server.

Actually,, it stops streaming, says im using a blocker or a proxy on Netflix,lol

Netflix does this on most devices. Some (more expensive) VPN services try to find ways to get around this.

Netflix has to protect their contracts, or they won't have any content, so you can see why this happens.

First I have just stop using about a mounth ago the B535 on 3. But I had and VPN server running (Raspberry Pi) that could easily connect to from another location. As also have VPN servers running else where I had no problem connecting to them.

The real issue opperating an VPN server is making shore you connection is not CG-NAT.

I also use pay for VPN services and had no problem connecting to them.

I'm really new to trying a VPN. If I sign up on my desktop does that mean my TV in the living room with the firestick is protected too? I'm thinking yes, but not sure.

Just enjoy my life, people and you.

If the desktop is the VPN client then no it wouldn't be. But if you are just signing up to the service from the desktop but configuring the router for the VPN endpoint then everything behind the router would be protected.

I find that VPN via a router and netflix twigs onto it and blocks it.
VPN on a PC works fine all the time.

And this is same VPN service and same server location.
