Hi all. This my first post. Looks like a busy place here. I am an American living in Ontario the past 11 years. I am currently wintering in Louisiana (My original home) and brought along an Apple TV gizmo. I subscribe to Netflix in Ontario and put it on hold while away. I subscribed to Netflix down here. (I have a US issued credit card). The Apple TV works with either Netflix. While here I purchased a ROKU XDS because it has lots of other content providers. I know it doesnt support Netflix.ca now. Netflix US has a lot better selection than in Canada. But Netflix CA does have some TV shows that the US version dont have. I plan on keeping both subscriptions when I go back up in the Spring

Here is my question(s).
Can I re-program the Rogers wireless modem with the VPN service, or will I need a wireless router plugged into the wireless modem, and re-program it?

If I am able to do the modem, how do I toggle it back to the Canadian IP to allow me to watch Netflix CA.
If I have to go the modem route, will I be able to have 2 separate IPs (one on the modem and one on the router)
That would present the perfect scenerio for me. I could let the ROKU and Apple TV find both avail. networks and choose the one I want for that particular streamer.

Your Thoughts!!!!

Thank you in advance
Mike

Mike, I have edited your thread to remove a reference to a frequent spammer on this forum. Please do not use that service. They are truly despicable operators who despite warnings have tried to deceiver users of this forum. Typically they are first time posters extolling the benefits of the service when in fact its the same individual.

Moving on...

I have moved your post to the Rogers Internet forum since your question is about the use of the Rogers modem and really not related to HTPC.

I doubt it. You will likely have to disable the router portion of the Rogers device and use it strictly as a modem. Then use a separate modem such as those discussed here.

If you access the enhanced admin menu of the Rogers modem you can enable/configure VPN functionality.

I have not tried to actually use this function, but it does exist in the modem that comes with the Extreme Plus service (SMCD3GN).

FYI, the administrative username/password for the Rogers SMC3GN to disable the routing function is:

Username: rogcesadmin
Password: wra8uje

Thanks for the replies.

Hugh, I'll take your advice. Do you know of any reliable VPNs that are less than $10 a month???
