What are the pros and cons using in Mexico?

We came back from a recent trip to the US with a chromecast AND a roku stick.

The roku stick setup was a snap and we use it almost daily.
I've put an hour or two into trying to setup the chromecast device and it still is not working.

I have two routers in the house - one with a VPN setup. I've tried with BOTH routers. No luck.

Now in the living room I use my Windows Vista laptop. Chromecast doesn't really like Vista and prefers Windows 7. In the office there is a Windows 7 desktop. I couldn't get that to work either but it may be a little too far from the TV. The thing I will try next is to attempt setup from my android based phone.

I'm pretty tech competent. They don't make it easy.

btw : I was interested in chromecast because I was hoping (by hook or by crook) to get access to ESPNU this fall so I could watch some college football.
