    VPN Assistance

    Looking for someone that has VPN experience. I have a subscription to Windscribe Pro and need assistance setting it up.

    Thanks in advance!

    Where are you stuck? Typically you'll get a user/pass, and they should have a set of instructions based on your OS/version.

    I have it installed on my computers/tablets/phones, but I would really like to just put it on my router so that everything is filtered (mainly my firetv).

    what make/model of router is it? Are you willing to purchase new network hardware if needed? Some routers support hardware VPN settings, but most consumer ones don't. (unless you're flashing the BIOS with something opensource, then typically VPN stuff has been added in.)

    It's a Xfinity branded router/modem so I doubt I modify the VPN settings. I'm not opposed to purchasing new hardware, but would need a modem and router. I see that windscribe sells pre-configured routers, but can't see spending an extra $200 for plug & play.

    Check out something like this then.

    You're going to be dropping $150 on the hardware either way, that's just entry level price for decent network gear. If the entire product they sell is $200 total, that's probably $50 to have someone else set it up ahead of time for you. (if it's $350, then yeah, I'd do it myself. For $50 the peace of mind knowing it's working well would be hard to argue with.)
