At the time you got 3 months free subscription with Sky ( I don't know if that still applies ) You have to open a Sky account but you don't pay anything until after 3 months, I closed the account when the fre...

Potential buyer for my house

I have somebody that is interested in buying my house.. The estate agent who has my house for sale is trying to get him to put a deposit down ASAP.

Re: Speed loss with a VPN router

Thanks Enrique.. Originally I wanted to go down the DNS route but I'm not capable of installing it onto the router myself, I contact a couple of computer shops where I live to see if I could pay somebody to do it for me and they didn't know what I was talking about, that's why I thought a VPN router...

Re: Speed loss with a VPN router

The VPN router to the main router is connected on the VPN " POE in on" ( this is the connection Liberty Shield told me to use ) this is connected to " Lan" on the main router... Hope this makes sense ?
The speed test I use is Ookla.

Speed loss with a VPN router

Can anybody tell me what they think is an acceptable loss of speed when using a VPN router connected to my main router.
I have fiber, my speed without the VPN router connected is approx 200mb with the VPN router connected approx. 28mb, can anybody tell me if this is normal?
Thanks in advance

I need to buy a new receiver but I've put off doing it until I was sure the reception wasn't going to disappear. Does anybody know if its possible to get a receiver that will also re...

Re: Firestick advice

If I changed my Amazon es account to Amazon UK and paid the extra subscription , would I still get free delivery in Spain and would I get Prime Video or would I have to pay extra again for that on top of my normal subscription ? Thanks

If I get a friend to buy a Firestick for me in the UK and set it up on their UK account then sign out before they post it to me in Spain, presumably once I sign in again with my Spanish prime account even using a VPN router all the UK apps will either not work or disappear ?
