    Scotgaz,

    I use VPNs at work all the time. Mainly for security purposes at my job. We use them to connect offices from location to locations over a secure encrypted connection. I'm not sure what you could use this for at home and my knowledge of them is also kinda limited as well. Though if you are looking for more stable internet I would indeed have some other suggestions.

    For one, you could edit the DHCP scope in you internet service provider's modem. If you edit the scope and put your computers IP in statically outside of the range that you create your PC would never have to look for an IP again. This also prevents future conflicts to ever interrupt connections due to another device logging into your network looking for your IP address.

    Doing that actually helped my smart TV more than anything. (Just a tip for anyone else having smart TV ip issues)

    There are a few other little things that you can do but on a scale of only 3-15 devices it won't really help. But if you really want I can explain a little more.

    Also if you have any specific VPN questions i can try my best to answer them for you.

      hi orsino, did a little more reading on VPN, and yea like you say it does seem more about security, but if my prob was stability to net then it would help that too i think. but it only seems to be streaming in house, i have had [phone company out who seperated broadband and [phone lines as there was too much noise in the wiring of the house?
      i know what im doing inside a router so, by edit the scope do you mean edit from 192.168.0.2 through 254 to something like 02 to 100 ? but wouldnt putting computers ip outside this cause it to be not seen by router so unable to connect to internet? or is it something like putting xbox into DMZ within router settings.....

        So if you put the scope 192.168.0.100 - 192.168.0.200 you can still use anything in the same subnet. So in other words you can statically assign your computers/xbox to 192.168.0.99 or 98 because they are still in the same subnet and the router will still see it. However if you have verizon or Timewarner I believe their routers default to 192.168.1.1. So make sure that you dont take up the routers IP or you wont be able to get to it through the web interface.

        Also note that you cannot go over 255 of course.

          ah. right i think know what your saying. the routers DHCP server will assign between the 100 and 200, and i can use static ip's below 100. i've never thought of doing that way, static ip's would be best on most things, but even dynamic nameservers have trouble keeping up with the amount of ip changes my provider makes. thanks mate ill try setup like that later,

            Let me know if you have any issues.

            Oh, and for the DNS issues.. you should be able to use you ISPs dns (or honestly another isps DNS)
            Here are some common ones to try:

            Comcast - 75.75.75.75
            75.75.76.76

            Timewarner - 24.25.5.60, 24.25.5.61

            Google - 8.8.8.8

            4.4.2.2 i think might be microsofts
