I created an ovpn file from my router and am using it outside of my home with a portable router (GLinet 2.4/5ghz), using my Windows laptop.
After importing the ovpn file into my router and starting the vpn, it appears to connect fine.
I can even use my phone to log into my home TPLink router and see the live VPN connection.
I can go to a command prompt and ping local devices on my network and they respond well.
My question is this.
I mainly want this VPN connection so I can watch my Spectrum TV outside of my home but loading Spectrum only gives me generic channels.
I understood the VPN feature would allow me to be able to mimic me being at home; thus when I load Spectrum TV web I can watch all my channels.
My travel router's IP shows a different local IP than my home network... do I need to change the IP subnet on my travel router to match mine at home?
Is there some other common setting I need to make on my travel router for this to work? I've read that people do this, so I feel like I should be able to as well.
Anyone have any ideas?
