Streaming services and VPN
Most popular streaming services such as Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime block incoming VPN connections. This does not mean the VPN is not working, it simply means they have recognized you are connecting to a VPN server and filtered that server from being able to stream.
Below are several options for you to follow if you encounter this issue while connected to a VPN on your FlashRouter.
VPN provider server recommendation
Contact your VPN provider for a server recommendation that is not blocked by popular streaming services. Be sure to mention that you are connecting to VPN via a router instead of the computer client. If your VPN provider does not have a helpful suggestion or server recommendation please try the below options or contact us for a solution.
Bypass VPN by device
The FlashRouters Privacy App has a VPN bypass by device feature that can be used on devices dedicated to streaming.
If access to streaming services not in your region is a higher priority for you then VPN encryption we recommend using a SmartDNS service on your FlashRouter to access the content you desire.
