Here you can find SmartStream setup information for your chosen device and also which services you can access whilst using SmartStream.

You can use the Table of Contents on the right hand side of this window to navigate between the different sections.

N.B. Support for Amazon Kindle Fire is only available with our 'Special' SmartStream DNS server, it also ONLY supports UK sites and REQUIRES an Amazon UK account.


Install Guide


Step 1
Use the 'Special DNS Server' from the below list, only the Special DNS servers have Amazon Instant UK/Kindle Fire support. You will need this later.




Step 2
Retrieve your VPN username and password, if you are a new member this is contained in the StreamVia Account Information email you received after ordering.




Step 3
If your device is not already connected to your network, please connect it now. Make sure you have internet access, albeit geo-blocked internet access.


Step 4
Go to Home

Step 6
On the next screen, tap on Wi-Fi


Step 7
Tap and hold on your wifi network name, then select Advanced Settings


Step 8
Now check the box Show Advanced Settings, tap the IP Settings drop-down and change DHCP to Static.


Step 9
With IP settings set to Static, scroll down and change DNS 1 and DNS 2 entries to the 'SmartStream Special' DNS servers you retrieved in Step 1 of this guide.

Step 11
Use the below link to sign in to SmartStream using your VPN username and password, this will activate SmartStream for your current broadband IP address. It is recommended you do this from a computer.

Should your broadband connection IP address change (if your router restarts or your ISP resets your connection) you will need to repeat this step of signing in, to update our systems.
