Can I have just 1 of my computers connect using a VPN?

I have a question about using an Asus N66U router with a VPN service like hidemyass. I have a cable modem--->N66U----> four computers connected to the N66U, one of which is my HTPC. Is there a way to configure the router so the HTPC can connect to it and use the VPN (hidemyass) while the other computers connect to the internet without using the VPN? If I cannot configure the router to do that, I do have another slightly older Asus with tomato I could use. Would I set the older router up with the VPN, connect my HTPC to it, and then connect the older router to the N66U?

  1. Most VPN services have client software which can be installed on a single PC if you wish.
  2. Maybe I'm not using the right terminology, sorry. What I'm wanting to do is be able to use a service like tunlr so I can watch shows like BBC while outside the UK. Acording to their web site I have to change the DNS to one of their addresses. So I would like to be able to do that with the HTPC, but not my other computers that are hooked up to the router
  3. Well I was able to get it working. I had to set the DNS address in the HTPC and was able to get BBC and some US shows to stream, so all is good. For some reason I thought it had to be set up on the router side (although I guess you could do it that way as well).
  4. I am glad you solved it!
