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 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.
