Use VPN to Access Your Internet Service at Home
When you are away from home and you access the Internet, you usually use a local Internet service provider. For
example, at a coffee shop you might be given a code that lets you use the coffee shop’s Internet service account to
surf the web.
The modem router lets you use a VPN connection to access your own Internet service when you are away from
home.You might want to do this if you travel to a geographic location that does not support all the Internet services
that you use at home. For example, your Netflix account might work at home but not in a different country.
Set Up VPN Client Internet Access in the Modem Router
By default, the modem router is set up to allow VPN connections only to your home network, but you can change
the setting to allow Internet access. Accessing the Internet remotely through a VPN might be slower than accessing
the Internet directly.
