My VPN Router is in the Mail - Asus RT-N16 Router

I'm Excited, my new VPN router is in the mail and is due to arrive in Japan any day now. I did my homework and trust it'll be just what I need for all my entertainment needs. The main reason why I have decided to purchase a VPN router was because last January I bought a Xbox 360 Kinect.  There is a feature on the main video section for Netflix that allows you to Activate streaming DVD's but only if you use the 6 digit pin code. Your computers IP has to match the same one that is on your Xbox. The only way you can get around this is to basically have a pre configured VPN router that goes directly to your chosen VPN server. The great feature about this is you'll get the option to select Wi-Fi or Lan making connecting much more pain less. So guys if you have a PS3, Wii, WD TV LIVE/PLUS or Xbox 360 this is a must if you truly want to cloak your box to watch anything on the net!

The router that I have purchased is the Asus RT-N16 StrongVPN Client Router - N, here are some facts/stats.

We all know that StrongVPN is the best when it comes to incredible VPN service and now you want to bring it to your network.  We've done the install and setup of the router including customized OS (PPTP-Asus, OpenVPN-dd-wrt), DNS, Firewall, and other specialized settings.  It's ready for your account info and you've got a routed connection to the incredible StrongVPN service. We have worked with a lot of routers in our years but this one is crazy fast and has HUGE memory.  It has 32 MB of flash and 128 MB of ram.  That's 8 times the amount of a WRT54GL!  It has the same 480 mhz processor as our E3000 model, which is 2x faster than the WRT54GL.  In fact, it's even 40% faster than our own E2000 model!  In our testing, this router gave almost 3x throughput of the StrongVPN traffic compared to a modified WRT54GL. This router will:
  • Connect to the StrongVPN network, creating a VPN tunnel connection to any of 63 servers in 10 countries around the world.
  • Serve that StrongVPN connection to your other networked devices.
  • Broadcast your wireless network through Wireless N at speeds up to 300 mbps.
  • Serves the tunnel locally to its 4 Gigabit LAN ports
  • Process the VPN traffic incredibly fast.
  • Create the easiest connection for multiple computers.
  • White, sleek design looks great.
Basically this will kick the crap out of my Buffalo router from 2 years ago that just gets 210 mbps that can only be configured on a Japanese IP. As soon as the new router comes and I get familiar on how it works I'll make a video showing it working on my Xbox 360 with possible tips or suggestions.
