why not try subbing VIP? roughly 35+- bucks for a year.
i think this is way more worth it than Spotify..

I have tried purevpn and expressvpn and both cannot be configured successfully using my DLink DIR-890L as only hostnames will work instead of IP address. My Dlink router only accepts ip addresses...i am trying to provide vpn for all my home devices that is streaming netflix

You can open command prompt and enter Tracert <hostname> it should show you the IP address.

Anyone knows if hardware accelerated cryptography for AES-NI enabled routers (e.g. Asus ac86u) depend on your own router settings or the VPN server settings?

I know some have tried on Pia but don't know about other services... I use Astrill at present

AES-NI is useful for openVPN type of VPNs

Hi guys,

I am a total noob. I want to get a vpn so I can stream Netflix USA, any good ones to recommend? Thanks!!!

So far I tried Norsvpn and Astrill.
Astrill has best performance for Netflix streaming but cost more than other VPN providers.

Hey guys, anyone tried Ivacy before? Really interested because of their prices but it kinda seems too good to be true as they're like offering 5 year lock in prices for 1.34 a month now.

Yeah Astrill is superb but expensive.

I'm still looking for other users to share subscription cost. The basic plan allows 5 concurrent users.
