PS3 Netflix - Netgear Router Tunlr Setup

Last Updated: Jul 09, 2015 11:07AM EDT

PS3 Netflix - Netgear Router Tunlr Setup:

Are you having problems switching Netflix regions on your PS3? Netflix has started auto-switching DNS servers in order to improve the performance of their service. This usually results in good service on their part, but it can potentially disable Tunlr from working on PS3's Netflix app.

If our previous guide didn't resolve your issue, you will need to make changes to your router settings.
