One of our most popular items has to be the VPN Accelerator, a Sabai Technology exclusive! Customers love using the VPN Accelerator to increase the usability and speed of their VPN network. Our developers decided to take this product and make it even better. The addition of a VPN Accelerator to your wireless VPN setup can make or break your ability to watch streaming content, depending on where you live in the world. See what all the fuss is about and experience faster VPN speeds with the new and improved Sabai Technology’s VPN Accelerator – now in pre-order for version 2!
Improved Hardware Specs
Better Interface Design
The new interface design is brighter and feels cleaner. Navigation and layout didn’t change much, but the overall effect is less “geek” and more modern. If you haven’t seen it yet, here is a sneak peek:
Better Integration through Built-in Proxy
For Sabai Technology developers, it made total sense to merge these two technologies. For the first time ever, VPN and proxy co-exist on the Sabai Technology VPN Accelerator! Users can now use the high speed connection of a VPN Accelerator while controlling their connection through web browsers. No more logging into the Accelerator interface every time you want to change IP location.
Using Gateways, you set up a laptop in your home as a “local” device. This means that local traffic, as opposed to VPN traffic, is fed to this device over the Wi-Fi network. While you use this computer mostly for local internet, you sometimes want to access foreign internet and browse privately.
Previously, you would have used our convenient Gateways function by logging into the VPN Accelerator and switching the entire device from “local” to “VPN.” Using the VPN Accelerator proxy function, switching locations just got easier! More details on this feature will be available as we get closer to launch!
A better way to see the World Cup
Middle Eastern football fans could be on the hook for some hefty charges if they want to see their national team in this year’s FIFA World Cup.
Rights to air the games in the Middle East and North Africa are held by beIN Sports, a pay network formerly known as Al Jazeera Sports, which charges new subscribers about $250 annually for the package of channels that carry the games, according to AlArabiya.net.
“Football fans in the Middle East will still have to pay to watch the 2014 FIFA World Cup legally, after a German broadcaster denied reports it will broadcast the tournament for free. The rights to air games in the Middle East and North Africa are held by beIN Sports, formerly Al Jazeera Sports, which charges new subscribers about $250 for an annual package of channels that includes games from the upcoming tournament in Brazil.” According to AlArabiya.net No ‘free’ World Cup TV in Arab world, says Germany’s ZDF
(Some coverage may or may not require subscriptions in the native countries.)
But there may be a better way, thanks to Sabai Technology.
Here are a few options:
– For the United Kingdom, television rights will be shared by BBC and ITV**. All BBC content will be available in catch-up on demand through BBC iPlayer – both from TV and radio. There will be additional content and interactive features from BBC Sport.
And ITV promises you can stream all its live matches via ITV Player at itv.com.
– In the United States, all the matches will be shown on the ABC and ESPN family of networks and can be streamed at WatchESPN.com and the Watch ESPN app. You’ll need your TV provider information to sign in.
– For coverage in Spanish, Univision will be dedicating the Univision Deportes network to 24-hour coverage of the tournament and live-streaming of all 64 matches on mobile apps and online, according to a report in Variety***. Here, again, you’ll need to have a login for a TV provider that carries Univision Deportes.
*Price depending on which VPN Router and VPN service provider the customer chooses.
The recent “How to download your StrongVPN OpenVPN file” blog post has proven a popular tool for new customers so we thought we should do a similar post for PPTP! For customers who are new to VPN Routers, PPTP may seem a bit easier than OpenVPN, just because there is no file download. To run your PPTP connection over your Sabai VPN Router you only need to have a few pieces of information from your VPN provider:
- Server Address
- Username (given by VPN provider, usually different from website login)
- Password (given by VPN provider, usually different from website login)
If StrongVPN is your VPN provider, you can find this information as follows:
Step One - Log into your StrongVPN account by visiting StrongVPN.com (Customers in China may need to use an alternate URL). Please note that this login information is different than your Sabai Technology login information. It is also different from your PPTP login information.
Step Two - Once logged into the Customer Area, hover over VPN Accounts and click on VPN Account Summary.
Step Three - In the table named, Your PPTP Accounts, visit the last column on the right and click the black Account Setup Instructions button.
Step Four - In the area named, PPTP Account Info, you will find your Server Address, Login, and Password. Copy and paste these items directly into the VPN Router PPTP page for accuracy, and/or write them down for future use. Your Login and Password for PPTP will be different from your StrongVPN.com customer login information.
Note: If you live in an area that may have difficulty resolving a reliablehosting.com web address, you can use the Server IP information interchangeably with the Server Address. Also note that if you change your server location, you will have to re-enter this PPTP information into the VPN Router.
Now you have the appropriate PPTP information for your VPN Router! This will allow you to run your entire home network over your PPTP StrongVPN account. If you aren’t sure where to input your PPTP information in the Sabai VPN Router, you can review the Sabai VPN Router setup instructions.

At Sabai Technology we understand that not everyone knows about VPN. Living as an expat is exciting and fun but we’re all human, we like what is familiar.

Sabai Technology has the solution to give you the best of both worlds. A Sabai VPN Router allows you to EASILY access, assign, and manage which of your devices use local internet or the VPN tunnel.
We’ve put together a fun little video to help explain just how a Sabai Technology VPN Router is the answer to your expat needs.
As always, Sabai Technology is here for you, so if you have any questions, thoughts or concerns please do not hesitate to email us at Support@SabaiTechnology.com.

While all Sabai Technology instructions come with details on the Gateway feature, we like to keep our customers involved and informed even after they have long ago accidentally thrown out the instructions. So, in the spirit of keeping things easy yet informative, we’re going to make sure to have good videos, infographics, and instructions for our customers to get anytime they need them.
Setting up the gateways:
Assign the default gateway
- None – assigns current router status (local internet if VPN is not running, VPN network if VPN is running)
- Local – assigns local internet
- VPN – assigns VPN internet
- Accelerator – assigns VPN Accelerator internet (if you have this device.)
Change an individual device to non-default, find the device in the list and click on the radio button in the desired column next to that device.
- D L V A: The gateway assigned to the device (D: Default, L: Local, V: VPN, A: Accelerator).
- The example shows Default as None and all devices set to D (default). We changed the TechSupport device (2nd in list) to Local by clicking the L (local) Radio Button next to that device and clicking Save. Now, all devices are accessing the Sabai Technology VPN Router’s default state (presumably VPN) except the TechSupport device which is accessing the local internet connection. Any device in the list can be managed in this way. The Gateway saves this setting and will connect each device accordingly.
While we can make things simple though, sometimes you just need a little boost of help. Reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re always happy to get things working for you!
