|All my posts above are moot and useless in light of this last post of yours so ignore them.|
First off let me just say, I'm not sure I'm buying this stuff about needing to fake a US IP address to access a free TV show. If they're giving it away for free, they don't give a crap where in the world it's transmitted to. Considering the US has much stricter censorship than Canada, it's much more likely to have online TV shows from Canada blocked in the US than the other way around.
I live in Canada too so why don't you post a link and I'll see if I can't connect and stream this TV show of which you speak without faking a US IP address.
Having said that.................I'm trying to figure out how to explain this to you so it makes sense.
Without knowing what you mean by "sensitive data" I'm going to be the optimist and assume you mean something like making online purchases and you're worried about your credit card information.
Assuming the above scenario, let's say you sit at your computer and you're going to simultaneously:
- Connect to your TV show
- Purchase something online.
You have one router and all data passes through it to the internet. First, you connect to your TV show and start streaming it. It is it's own discrete connection and data stream.
Then you open your web browser and connect to your bank. An encrypted session is created that is also a discrete. The information you send to the bank does not leave that encrypted session and jump magically over into the other data stream to be picked out by this DNS service. The DNS service and the TV show you'r streaming is never aware of it.
If you open 10 tabs in Internet Explorer and go to ten separate websites, your data isn't broadcast to all 10. Each is independant and discrete with only the data relating directly to them going to them.
So what I'm saying is, you don't require a "secure" or "separate" subnet at home to hide your "sensitive data" from the DNS service. They can only be aware of what you send them directly. So you don't need extra routers and such.
Yes, it's possible you'll have to connect to a DNS service in order to stream a TV show from the US but you can rest assured that you can do so safely without the DNS service seeing any of your "sensitive data"
Keep in mind though, that all data leaving your network has to go through your ISP in order to get to the internet. It is after all your gateway (door) to the internet. Also, keep in mind they can, and do, keep logs of all traffic. So if you're doing something you don't want others to know about, don't kid yourself and think you can hide it, you can't.
It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
