Asus RT-AC56R VPN Router Setup

We created Sabai OS to be easy to set up whilst having enough advanced options to keep pros happy too. Our firmware is plug and play, and needs no expert knowledge. Simply follow the instructions and you’ll be up and running in no time.

Getting started

To set up your Sabai OS powered Asus RT-AC56R router:

  1. Unplug your modem from the power supply

  2. Connect your router to the modem via Ethernet cable

  3. Plug your Asus RT-AC56R router and modem into the power socket

  4. Start up the modem and router

  5. Open your web browser and type into the address bar:

  6. Enter the password that came with your router

Now you’re at the Sabai OS home screen, follow the setup instructions from our VPN Router Setup guide.


One of Sabai OS’ most popular features is unique to our router firmware, and is available on the Asus RT-AC56R - Gateways. 

Our gateways feature allows you to view all the devices connected to your router, and designate whether each one should use your local internet IP address or your VPN IP, and even whether or not they should use the VPN accelerator. This means you can play games from your local connection and stream from abroad without having to make any adjustments to your settings, and if you do want to switch, it’s easy from our unique user interface.

No one wants a slow internet connection, and when it comes to VPN, speed can become a critical factor, that’s why we’ve made gateways to allow different devices to either go through your VPN connection or your local IP, so you don’t need to create multiple WiFi networks that will slow down your router’s performance.


Asus RT-AC56R Optimized by Sabai OS

So what’s the difference between this and an ‘off the shelf’ model?

The Asus RT-AC56R powered by Sabai OS looks identical to the same model with with stock firmware, but outperforms it in every way. Our routers achieve higher speeds than stock firmware and DD-WRT, and allows you to connect your VPN to Roku, Apple TV, Xbox, PS4, tablets, and many more.

Why choose a Sabai VPN router

Our routers are delivered to you ready to go, with OpenVPN and PPTP easy to set up. Sabai OS is optimized for use with a VPN, and has many features that are difficult to set up on DD-WRT.

Most VPN users have to install the VPN software on each device, and are often limited to just a few devices connecting to the VPN at a time. With a Sabai router, all your internet devices can connect through your VPN service - or not, you can choose which do and which don’t.

Should you have any difficulties, our US based technical support staff are available to help!

Sabai OS makes it easy to stream sports from another country using a VPN connection to mask your location whilst simultaneously using your local IP to play online games, listen to music, or just browse social media. An Asus RT-AC56R router powered by Sabai OS is a great entry into the world of powerful VPN routers that protect your privacy whilst maintaining lightning fast speeds.

    Good product with room for improvement

    Posted by EM on Jan 28th 2018

    The router works well after a whole day of fruitless effort and very efficient help from Ruth.
    Sabai OS is sold for more than the price of the router. I'm a bit disappointed for two reasons.
    First, documentation is lacking, pretending that it's plug-and-play. Clearly, it's not (at least not always). There is no help available for troubleshooting.
    Second, I'm baffled that an OS developed with security in mind sends the router password uncrypted over the WiFi connection.

    Great router ... was hoping for faster VPN

    Posted by TB on Mar 8th 2017

    This router has all the bells & wistles for many configurations a network admin would want. Easy setup & consistent with uptime. The only downside has been the speed of the VPN. My Internet pipe tracks around 60mbps, but with the VPN service enabled I get around 20mbps. It meets my needs for the most part but I was expecting more. I had a service call with Sabai (great service) and they concluded that the CPU of the router could only produce that speed when it was encrypting for the VPN.

    The router works as described. I would like to say thank you to Rhett and Ruth as they have the best customer service I've seen for any company that I can remember dealing with. You won't be disappointed with either the router or they're kind customer service
