I have a LG smart Tv with browser. I need the tv browser to connect to a uk based proxy server on port 808. Unfortunately there is no option within tv to setup proxy for its browser.

Now the Tv connects via a wireless connection to the internet. IE: TV <-> D-Link DIR-605L <-> ADSL <-> WWW.

Is it possible to setup this wireless router to connect the TV to the Proxy ?? If so ? where ? and what setings do i need to change in the wireless router ??

In short my question is ? How do i get the wireless router to make up for the lack of proxy connectivity within my Tv browser ??

Thanks in advance

NB: I have configured my Pc's browser's proxy settings, and streaming via the proxy works 100%


Thank you for your reply. I have had a look at the site you suggested. I really dont want to go down that route. I fully understand that the router I have may not offer the routing capability that I am look for. Seeing as I already have the Pc and associated browser solution.. I guess what I'm actually looking for is the physical hardware router solution that can replace the Proxy-ing capabilities of my Pc browser.

Moving forward If anyone can offer me the make/model of a suitable home router wired or wireless with associated settings to accomplish above I would be very grateful.

Once again thank you for your informative reply.

Your router is not going to be able to carry out the quite extensive manipulation required to direct the connection to a proxy.

You might want to look at tunlr.com which does proxying without needing to configure a proxy server. You set the tunlr DNS servers in your TV. Any connection to a supported destination will be directed to their servers instead, and are transparently proxied via local server (in the UK if that's where the destination is).
