I am off to Florida in 3 weeks’ time for just over 3 weeks and I have been looking at various websites that let you watch UK based TV, BBC iPlayer etc for a monthly fee of around £10 as I don’t relish the idea of catching up on all the TV I have to watch
It got me thinking, could I load Splashtop on to an old laptop I have, plug it into my router via CAT5 instead of wireless and watch TV that way via my iPad? I have been looking at setting up VPN etc, but I get lost in the terminology. I am not sure how my way would perform, if at all, due to bandwidth etc.
Am I being totally simplistic in my view, or could it work? I know the laptop would have to stay on all the time which is a bit of a worry, unless I could also find a way of waking it up remotely?
Appreciate your comments.
