One of the first things you’ll need to do after installing the VPN client is to connect to a VPN provider. You can choose any one you like as long as you have a.pem file for the key. The device comes with OpenVPN pre-installed, but you can also install other providers from the community. After connecting to a VPN, you’ll be able to configure the device via the Settings app. From here, you can also monitor bandwidth usage and adjust the encryption settings, if needed.

The Device Ӓ

The Asus RT-N66U is a bit of a hybrid device as it has a 10.8″ display but is not quite a tablet as it has a keyboard and it is not your typical laptop as it has a trackpad. The display is of the IPS type and has a resolution of 1600 x 900. It’s an HD screen and has a very high pixel density of 263ppi. This makes it suitable for displaying images and videos, although text editing is still possible. The device is also quite light at 2.64 pounds which makes it easy to move around.

What’s unique about the Asus RT-N66U is that it has an Ethernet port which can be used to connect to the internet. Moreover, the device has an M.2 slot which can be used to install a memory card up to 256GB in size. Finally, Asus also enabled their eMMC memory on this device which can be used to store files locally (thus increasing the onboard storage space). These specs make it a versatile device, and although it looks like your typical laptop replacement, it is actually a lot more than that.

The Software Ӓ

The software supplied with the Asus device is based on the Windows 10 operating system, and it is a complete and optimized package. In addition to the VPN client, you get the Opera web browser, the Win32 Disk Imager utility, the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware utility, and it comes with a one-year subscription to AVG Anti-Virus. The software is provided in the x64 and in the ARM versions, and it supports both 32-bit and 64-bit computers.

The VPN client supports OpenVPN which is one of the most popular and most secure protocols available today. In addition to that, there is also the IKEv2 protocol which is a more modern and secured replacement for the Internet Key Exchange (IKE) protocol. The software allows you to connect to up to five different VPN servers at the same time, and it provides a very secure and quick connection to the internet.
