I have my DDWRT router VPN connected but still unable to get it work for Kindle. It is strange that when I check my ip-address in PC with cable connected to router, it shows a US location. However, in Fire or other Wifi devices, it still showing my Hong Kong ip-address.

my setting are:
Router(1) PPPoE to ISP
Router(2) VPN to a US VPN server
Fire Wifi connected to Router(2) .... this shows Hong Kong ip location
PC cable connected to Router(2) .... this shows a US ip location

Anyone succesfully connect the Kindle via VPN??

Okay, my *excellent* VPN provider has confirmed the following:
"Amazon will prevent any attempt to establish a VPN connection on Kindle Fire. However, you can use a VPN enabled router to trick Fire.

In order to configure your router for HMA Pro VPN, you need to flash it with DD-WRT firmware.

You can check if your router supports this @ http://www.dd-wrt.com/site/support/router-database

How to install the DD-WRT firmare: http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Installation."



AGAIN - I'm definitely going to go slowly here, as if you mess up, you will BRICK your router!
