Customers who purchase the Sabai Asus RT-N66U, Linksys E4200, Linksys E3200, NETGEAR WNR3500L, or Belkin N300 Share have access to a unique and helpful network feature. These VPN Routers have at least one USB port and can share a USB printer or external hard drive on the network, so they can be accessed wirelessly. By connecting an external drive to the network, you will be able to store documents, like photos, videos or music on the device and access them via a folder on your desktop. This setup is great for families with lots of digital media.
You will need:
- A Sabai VPN Router with at least one USB drive
- Formatted External Hard Drive with USB Cable Connection
Leaving your USB External Hard Drive disconnected, log in to your Sabai VPN Router by visiting http://192.168.199.1 in ether Firefox or Chrome. You will be required to log in.
