    hi ,nice site ...


    any experts out there that could help me please ..would be a great help ..cant seem to find an answer ..

    i have a quad core android media player .. and a vpn to connect to america .. i find it can be slow .

    i have been told that ,i can use a vpn only to login into nbc sports america ...then somehow config things on my network to then use smart dns which is faster ..


    which i am hoping i can do..is this possible as smart dns cant be used on its own ..


    would be brill if someone could help many many thanks

    Hello welcome to Android Forums, we're here to try and help.

    You're trying to use a VPN to watch sport on NBC, which restricted to US IP addresses only? Might just be the speed of the internet between the States and wherever you are is just slow. What country are you in? Don't think changing DNS would help, that's only for looking up internet addresses and not the overall data speed, especially for streaming. Latency could be another issue as well, that would cause problems for high-bandwidth streaming.

    Hi,

    googling "smart dns service" (w/o quotes) might give you an idea what that is and how it works.
