I use expressvpn for netflix. Some of the US servers don't work but they have so many US servers that one will bound to work.

I've been using epressvpn for over a year.

Might get a 2nd hand router to install the vpn app on it to get my other media streamers on US netflix and maybe hulu when i decide to go crazy



how to install on 2nd router.

1. Fiber connect to fiber modem
2. fiber modem to 1st router and 2nd router



or

1.
1. Fiber connect to fiber modem
2. Fiber modem to 1st router

3. 1st router to 2nd router with different IDS ?

You can set it on your router. Either using OpenVPN(for newer routers) or L2TP in older routers. You have to access router admin page. You can Google for more info.

Think the correct method is the 2nd one.
The vpn router needs to be connected from the non vpn router.

Then you will have a diff WiFi ID for the vpn router.

Hi guys need help here. I signed up for ExpressVPN and my original internet speed fell from 400 plus to just below 15Mbps.

Tried 2 different SG servers and HK severs as well but makes no difference. Is there any settings to improve speed?

Or is there any other VPN that has good speeds?

TIA.

are you using desktop client/mobile app/OpenVPN client on router?

I previously tried expressvpn before but requested for refund due to slow speed.. has been on PIA for the past two years and so far still the best for me in terms of speed and settings adjustability

All VPNs offer a trial period. Start with the cheapest one IBVPN and see if it works. If not cancel and they give you money back. Do this for all VPNs.
