How to set up a VPN on your Amazon Fire StickTV

Amazon Fire TV does not have built-in VPN or MediaStreamer DNS functionality. In order to use a VPN.Express on your Amazon Fire TV, you need to connect your Amazon Fire TV to a VPN-enabled virtual router or router. 

Two alternatives:

Alternative 1: Use your laptop to create a virtual WiFi
Whether you’re using Windows or Mac, you can set up a virtual hotspot manually. It means that you’re turning your computer into a router, making all your traffic reroute through it.
You can also try Virtual Router, a free open source software that easily lets you create a WiFi hotspot in Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012.


Alternative 2: Get a VPN enabled DD-WRT router
We’ve partnered with Flashrouters to deliver the fastest routers with VPN.Express preinstalled. With such a router, connect to your desired server location to surf the web as if you were there!
Follow the tips above to make all your traffic run through a VPN. Then, connect your console or Apple TV or firestick to a VPN through the virtual hotspot you’ve created and you’ll be able to use it just as if you were in your desired location. No more geo-restrictions!
