    My Grandparents in St. Louis, MO have Charter Spectrum Internet, TV and phone service and I live in Minneapolis and have Mediacom internet. I don't know if any of you use the Charter Spectrum app, but, outside of the Spectrum internet modem/network, you CAN'T WATCH ANYTHING INCLUDING CNN, etc!!!!! Spectrum doesn't let you watch ANYTHING outside of home NOT EVEN ON DEMAND SHOWS on the Spectrum app. I would like to be able to connect my home internet to their home internet via a VPN configured on my home router so I can use my Roku and be able to watch their Spectrum programming so it would be like I'm on their home network as well as my phone (when hooked up to wifi on my home network), tablet, computer, etc. I've heard about OpenVPN you can do it BUT I have no idea how to configure it. I have remote access to my Grandparent's Netgear Router so I can get everything put in if possible by the home router. I've talked to them about this and they're completely fine with me doing this so I just need help figuring out how to get this to work. I also have TeamViewer installed on my Grandparents computer so I can get anything installed myself software wise.

    No, you need to make sure Spectrum is fine with this, and get their advice on how to do it. We will not help with this type activity. Closing.
