    Hi everyone,
    So, the airport express can't do a VPN network, which means no netflix through my Wii. I was thinking of getting the D-Link DIR-615 and having that connect wirelessly to the airport express, with the D-Link doing a VPN. So, it would go Wii -> D-Link (with VPN) -> Airport Express -> Modem. Everything else, computers and whatnot, would just go to the Airport Express.

    Would that work? Thanks a bunch!

    It should. The Wii will be double-NATed but that's OK since it'll be using the VPN anyway. The Wii and other items on your network will not be able to talk to one another, I don't know if that's an issue for you - for example if it were an Apple TV the extra router would prevent AirPlay from working from your computers/iOS devices.

    Awesome, thanks for the info! It doesn't matter if the Wii can't talk to anything else, all I use it for are games and (hopefully soon!) Netflix.
