VPN & Complete Wifi Set up

As the Title suggests WILL IT WORK  ....????? 

 

I honestly cannot see HOW it could ....Using a VPN router I could connect my "Main" Computer (Via "Hard Wire") but everything else around the house 95% of the time will "Lock On to"  the Disc thats sitting in that particular room Via Wifi ...Which in turn "links" back to the Smart Hub & NOT the VPN Router .. 

 

Your Thoughts Ladies & Gentlemen would be most Welcome !! 

 

Regards

Re: VPN & Complete Wifi Set up

I have my "Main" Smart Hub 2 & my VPN Router (so I dont have to put a separate VPN Software on each & every Device ) ....

 

Works like this ..... "Standard" Smart Hub 2 Set up .. & my VPN Router via LAN to the Smart Hub 2 + the "Main PC"is connected (Via LAN) to the VPN Router & thence to the Smart Hub ....

 

However, as I have "Several" peripherals (Wifes Laptop / Printer / Mobile Ect ect connected via Wifi to one of the DISCS  (In 4 Rooms of my house) there is NO WAY I can have my Peripherals connected to the VPN router (BECAUSE THEY ARE CONNECTED TO DISCS THAT ARE "LINKED" BACK TO THE SMART HUB 2 .. 

 

You See my Problem ????

Yes, but I was wondering why you needed the smart hub at all. I guess you are using the black discs which only work with the SH2 rather than the white 'mesh' discs that will work with any router.

The only thing I could suggest is to use the SH2 as the secondary router/wap and connect the VPN router to line either directly or via a modem. That way everything will go via the VPN router.

Hmm, you would have to use the SH2 as a WAP rather than a secondary router as it doesn't have a WAN port unless you have FTTP.
