VPN-Ready Router Lets You Share the Love
Back when I only had one computer, one VPN access point was fine. But now that I have two computers, a PS3, and a wifi-ready Android phone. Applying the VPN to the latter two, in particular, has become a sisyphean ordeal. I need an easier way to share the VPN love.
Here’s the answer
The Belkin Enhanced Wireless Router is a home networking ninja, which will take your VPN login info and keep you connected. This tip comes courtesy of my amigos at weird shanghai (I think you’ll need a VPN to see it).
It’s called Passthrough
Not sure if this works for all VPN services. So check with your provider if they support ‘VPN passthrough’ before buying the router. For example here is how you would set it up for Witopia.
VPNs and Taobao Access
One word of warning: VPNs can mess with your Taobao access. If Taobao thinks you are signing in from overseas, they may freeze your account. Just give them a call and tell them that you have the VPN, and they will chill out. Taobao Service Number: 0571-88157858
