To be protected by Winston, devices must be connected behind Winston. Please refer to this article for more information regarding appropriate device connection order.

Note: Because Winston scrambles your internet activity, other devices will likely incorrectly detect your location and time zone. You may wish to manually set your location and/or time zone on these devices so they may work as intended.

No additional configuration is required to connect most devices within your Winston network

Please note that if your router has a DNS Server in it (most do not), log into your router following your router's instruction guide and set it's DNS primary server to If this still does not work, you may need to disconnect from WiFi, close your browser completely, and power off your router. Then, restart your router and reconnect to WiFi.

Some devices and applications, particularly older, legacy devices, may require additional configuration for full functionality on your Winston network.
