I currently have 2 routers. Router 1 is my primary gateway. It is actiontec wifi router that I got from frontier communications. (192.168.1.1)
Router 2 is a Netgear N600 Dual Band, DD-WRT based router . (192.168.1.2)
Currently, to extend my range of wifi in my new home, I have disabled DHCP on router 2 and connected its WAN port to Router1 LAN port. This has enabled roaming access across my home.
I have a couple of DVD players, a WIFI based inkjet printer and a network video recorder (NVR) based IP cameras. ( the IP cameras are connected to the NVR which acts as a switch and that is connected to a LAN port of my primary router).
Here is what I would like to achieve.
Access my IP camera's or other devices from starbucks or airport wifi, only after establishing a secure VPN connection to my home VPN server and not by simply entering the home IP address, port and username/password.
When on a open hotspot or when I am connected to my home wifi, browse the web via establishing a secure VPN connection to my home VPN server.
the DVD player in my home should be able to access Netflix, amazon prime etc, without having to go through VPN.
When I am on my home wifi, I need the ability to access other devices within my home network such as Wifi printer without having to establish a VPN connection.
I believe DDWRT has a OPENVPN server that I can setup.
Can anybody help me point to how I should get started on this, if it is even possible to get a setup like this.
I can switch my router 2 to become router 1 , if that makes the setup easier.
