A Virtual Private Network allows you to access online activities privately, stream content, play games online, and download files no matter where you are or who you are by encrypting your connection to the Internet. This article guides you on setting up your router, Synology VPN server, and TvBox.
Why should I use it
Most of the World Wide Web is free. Not because of the provider, but because of the open nature of the Internet. The so-called Internet Freedom has been a marketing gimmick for many years, and it does not work. It is not a good thing for your online privacy. The reason is that people from governments or other governments can now easily block the Internet by simply refusing to give their support to the IP Certificate system. What this means is that they can easily switch off the DNS server by simply changing the government’s control to something like IPv6.
In this article, you will learn how to Integrate VPN into your Home Network (router, Synology NAS, TvBox)
Integrate it on a Home Router
1. Log into your home router
For most routers, you’ll have to start by entering their IP address into your search bar and logging in.
2. Configure your home router
Some routers have integrated VPN functionality. For others, you’ll have to reconfigure their settings to redirect their traffic to a Virtual Private Network server. So the best way to fully understand how to configure your home router is to check your manufacturer’s manual or website.
3. Try it!
Once you’ve completed the configuration process for your home router, try it to see whether your connection is working or not. You’ll be able to log into your home router at any time from home.
Integrate VPN into Synology NAS
In this article, we will explain the setup of the Synology router (also known as a NAS Server). We will run our private network by using a Virtual Private Network from any internet-connected device, such as smartphone, tablet, laptop, or any other network-attached device, and the router or server can securely tunnel all traffic that goes into the network.
Here are the steps to integrate a VPN on Synology NAS:
- Connect to your Synology NAS.
- Navigate to Control Panel > Network > Network Interface to begin.
- Click the Create button.
- Select Create VPN profile from the drop-down menu.
To import and connect to your preferred Virtual Private Network service, use the on-screen wizard.
The most straightforward method is to use OpenVPN and import a configuration file provided by your Virtual Private Network service. After establishing the Virtual Private Network connection, the Synology NAS will route all traffic through it as if it were its network connection.
Integrate VPN into TVBox
Downloading an app for TVBox is as simple as downloading an app for your phone since most TVBox devices are running under the Android system. So here are the steps:
- Visit the Google Play Store and download the app for your chosen VPN service provider. VPN Unlimited is a service that we recommend. It is a low-cost software with a lot of features.
- Install the VPN app on your TVBox.
- Enter your login information (provided by your VPN service provider).
- Click Connect after selecting a server.
You have completed the task! You should now be connected to your VPN and able to stream using your TVBox anonymously.
