PS3 Netflix - DD-WRT Router Tunlr Setup

Last Updated: Feb 22, 2016 03:33PM EST

PS3 Netflix - DD-WRT 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.

Note: These instructions are for users who have a high level of experience with using the PS3 and performing advanced level do-it-yourself repair on it. There is no guarantee implied with this product guide. Although these instructions usually work to correct this issue, anyone who uses this information does so at their own risk.


PS3 Netflix DD-WRT Router Setup - Troubleshooting Guide for DD-WRT Router - PS3 Stuck Region

There are 2 methods. If one does not work, please try the other.

Method 1 (Selective Forwarding)

  1. To make use of the following steps, locate your DD-WRT's control panel for the Web and open it. You can usually access your router by typing one of the following into your browser's address bar:
    192.168.0.1
    192.168.1.1
    192.168.2.1
    192.168.11.1
  2. Navigate to Administration and then select Commands to open the Commands screen. Copy the following data and then paste it on the screen:
    • iptables -t nat -I PREROUTING -p udp -d 8.8.8.8 --dport 53 -j DNAT --to 45.33.81.76
    • iptables -t nat -I PREROUTING -p udp -d 8.8.4.4 --dport 53 -j DNAT --to 45.33.81.76
    • iptables -t nat -I PREROUTING -p tcp -d 8.8.8.8 --dport 53 -j DNAT --to 45.33.81.76
    • iptables -t nat -I PREROUTING -p tcp -d 8.8.4.4 --dport 53 -j DNAT --to 45.33.81.76
  3. When you're finished, select Save Firewall and then Run Commands.

Method 2 (Forwarding All DNS Traffic)

  1. To make use of the following steps, locate your DD-WRT's control panel for the Web and open it. You can usually access your router by typing one of the following into your browser's address bar:
    192.168.0.1
    192.168.1.1
    192.168.2.1
    192.168.11.1
  2. Locate the DD-WRT's control panel and open it. Instead of going immediately to Administration, assign your PS3 a static network IP address and then navigate to Administration and select Commands. Copy and paste the following data:
    • ​iptables -I PREROUTING -s INSERT_IP_OF_PS3/32 -p udp --dport 53 -j DNAT --to 45.33.81.76​​
    • iptables -I PREROUTING -s INSERT_IP_OF_PS3/32 -p tcp --dport 53 -j DNAT --to 45.33.81.76
  3. When you're finished, select Save Firewall and then Run Commands.

Last Steps
