Netflix Update

IMPORTANT – Your router must support static routes in order to get around Netflix’s blocks on some devices. If it does not support them, you can use a uRouter. Please click here for uRouter information.

iOS Devices & Windows Netflix App

Step 1.

Log in to your routers administration panel and search for a section that allows you to add static routes.

Step 2.

Gateway: (use the IP address of your router – this is the IP in the address bar of your browser. It will normally be 10.x.x.x or 192.168.x.x)
Metric: (Use “0” for uRouters. For all other routers, set the metric as “2”.)
Interface: lan
Please note that static routes may change in the future.
Set up your routes to look like this –

IP Address

Subnet Mask

Prefix (optional) /32 /32 /20 /22 /20 /19 /21 /18 /17

Xbox, Android, Sony Devices

Unfortunately due to Netflix’s blocking measures, simply blocking Google’s DNS no longer works. If you have a device that is not currently working with DNS, you may need to add IP Tables. You will need a router that allows you to edit and setup IP Tables. DD-WRT and OpenWRT routers should be able to do this. Alternatively, you can use a uRouter, but there is no guarantee this will work for everyone.

Add the following IP Tables to your router.

iptables -I PREROUTING -t nat -p udp –dport 53 -j DNAT –to-destination
iptables -I PREROUTING -t nat -p tcp –dport 53 -j DNAT –to-destination
