VPN Issues .............................


Recommended Posts

I was using z FREE VPN and yesterday it was closed down.  www.ustvgo.tv

 

Can anyone recommend another VPN? 

 

Doesn't have to be free, but has to include CNBC as I trade stocks on the NYSE

 

Thanks

The other issue with Surfshark for some users will be that it has a very small number of servers that you can configure in your wifi router, e.g., manual configuration.  Most of their connections require you to use one of their apps, which obviously isn't possible via a wifi router.

 

One other pretty annoying feature I've run into with Surfshark is their tendency to lock you out of your account if/when your ISP ends up giving you a different IP address. Because Surfshark's current system sees that as some kind of duplicate user/security risk.

 

But at about $2 a month available via various of their promotions, they're definitely one of the least expensive paid VPN services available out there, their apps work well, and they have a decent selection of U.S. server locations.

I access Netflix (US) via the Salt Lake City servers and have had no buffering issues. Programs usually take about 30 seconds to pre-load.  I had a lot of buffering and drop-outs with PURE-VPN previously.

 

Honestly, I have done nothing with my WiFi, configuration wise.  I use an Intel NUC running off  3BB fiber WiFi.  I just sign in to Surfshark when I want to use it.

I tried a few that did not work or had problems before getting surshark. It works and about the cheapest

I NEED CNBC specifically

 

If you could provide a link to the source of CNBC I could try it with NordVPN.

That site now seems to want people to subscribe specifically to Nord VPN to watch those channels.

were you able to connect to "LIVE" so that you see the ticker tapes

 

Well it shows like "LIVE", "LIVE NOW" but no ticker tapes.

Are they shown 24/7?

It's 1:49 AM in NY now?

If I don't forget I'll retry in the evening.

Compared to nordvpn they ALL are ridiculous with just a bunch of servers around the world when nordvpn has more than 5000.

Why do people even discuss this topic when it's so clear already ?

do you use any other search engine but google ?!
