Even though they claim they use a server in Idaho, when I use a webservice that shows my location, it still said BC Canada. So no go with changing my location this way.
I had the Mango version of the gl,inet router. I have only used it for attaching to a Visible phone. (as you may have seen done on these forums)
BTW - the basic Visible plan does not work in Canada. You have to upgrade to Basic +. Problem is that it only provides .5GB of data. Sounds worthless to me.
I never have used it as a WiFi repeater, or any other features.
It supports openVPN. Installing Expressvpn was super easy. I was even able to do it after a cocktail. (not always easy for me)
The repeater works great. VPN works great.
The service that shows my location, shows LA CA, just as I selected.
All the apps that I have tried on my Roku stick work. Haven't tried them all.
Netflex works fine.
Wife is watching Guys Grocery Games here in Salmon Arm BC Canada.
All is right with the world.
Thanks for all you help!!!
