Linksys WRT320n

I am currently stationed overseas and I use a states-side VPN provider to watch content like Hulu and Netflix, I have an internet ready TV but in order to be able to watch US content on it I have to configure my Linksys router to use the VPN address that I am giving it, and I am at a loss on how to accomplish this.

I found the answer thanks no need for posts unless you know how to configure a VPN tunnel on a Sony Bravia 46NX700

Do you need help still?

Off hand I think you are going to need a computer in the "picture".

The computer would have the VPN connection THRU the WRT320n.  You then setup the TV to the that computer as its default router and route the traffic through that computer.

I will double check, but I don't think that the WTR320n or the TV can be the end point of a VPN tunnel.  So you need something else that can be, which is  the computer.

Yes I still require assistance what I wanted to do was simply buy a router that allows VPN tunneling, but my choices on the base are limited so I am back to square one. I contacted Linksys and they verified what I thought that the router model simply does not support VPN tunneling.
I am interested in the solution you proposed but I am not sure I fully understand what it involves, if you do not mind can you expand on it a little more?

I opted to go ahead and buy the Cisco RV 120W Wireless-N VPN Firewall it is a little overkill for what I need, but at this point what choice do I have, I am will mark this as closed and thank you for your input.

The solution of using ICS addresses the original question but does not answer what was needed which was a way to configure the WRT320N and or the Sony Bravia to use wireless VPN.
