This tutorial will show you how to set up ExpressVPN on your Sabai router using the OpenVPN protocol. Before you start, you will need:

Important: The OpenVPN manual configuration does not offer the same security and privacy benefits as the ExpressVPN app. If your router does not support AES-NI (e.g., Asus RT-AX88U and RT-AC86U), you may experience occasional speed issues while using the OpenVPN manual configuration.

2. Configure your Sabai router

To access the Sabai router dashboard, open a web browser and enter 192.168.199.1 into the address bar. If your router’s IP address was changed in the past, or if you cannot remember it, you can find it in your device’s settings.

Sign in with your username and password. By default, they are admin and sabaipass123. (If you forgot your router password, factory reset your router.)

Select Sign In.

Select “Sign In.”

In the left sidebar, select Network > OpenVPN.

Select “OpenVPN.”

Select Choose file.

Select “Choose file.”

Select the ovpn. file you downloaded earlier. Select Open.

Select Show File.

Select “Show File.”

Select Edit.

Select “Edit.”

For Username/Password, paste the OpenVPN username and password you found earlier. Select Done > Save.

Select “Save.”

Select Start.

Select “Start.”

It will take a while for your Sabai router to set up the VPN connection. Once you are connected to the VPN, you will see “VPN is up via OpenVPN” and the VPN’s IP address in the top-right corner of the screen.

Once you are connected to the VPN, you will see “VPN is up via OpenVPN” and the VPN’s IP address.

To verify you are connected, you can use ExpressVPN’s IP Address Checker to check your IP address and location. They should match the IP address and location shown on the router dashboard.
