TEK VPN routers offer a single Astrill VPN connection to all devices that are linked to a single home/office wifi network! Why struggle to configure the VPN on each device (with additional accounts), when you can get the benefits of a VPN on practically any device with a wifi router.
It encrypts your internet traffic so that you can bypass the Chinese ISP firewall (and other shady people), and allows access to blocked sites like Facebook, YouTube, Gmail, etc.
One Astrill account subscription is all you need to cover all the devices on the network, no matter iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, Android, Mac or PC.
With the 500+ VPN router families experience, if you live in Shanghai, to maximize the performance of the VPN router, we suggest you to have internet with more than 20Mbps connection speed from the provider called China telecom. If you are not sure how to find out the provider name or the speed of the house, pls visit the website of netreport.sh.189.cn, and send a screenshot to our email of firstname.lastname@example.org

A VPN (virtual private network) is a network connection setting that allows you to connect directly with a server anywhere in the world. By using this type of connection, the security settings of that server and its IP address are shared with you, as if you were physically located there. This means that your internet use is encrypted and official agencies cannot prevent you from visiting sites like Facebook and YouTube. This is because, technically speaking, your public connection is to the VPN server and after you are connected, the end website is shown to you privately. Other “unrestricted” services will be significantly faster for the same reason (i.e. Gmail, Google, Google Maps, etc.). Occasionally, a government may try to block the servers of VPN services, but this is rarely a problem because the VPN service will quickly set up a new server with a new IP address that isn’t blocked. This has only happened a few times over the past several years and service is usually restored within a day or two.
Our VPN routers are configured to work with Astrill VPN, one of the most popular and reliable VPN services for people living in China. You can either use your existing Astrill account or purchase a new one. If you have already paid for a different VPN, we may still be able to configure a router for you. Send us a message and let us know which VPN service you prefer to use.
Our VPN routers allow you to deploy one VPN account and let everyone on the VPN wifi network get access to any website. This is much simpler than configuring the VPN settings on each device. Installing one-by-one also requires you to pay for separate VPN accounts if they want to connect at the same time. Especially when you have more than 5 devices, the fee of buying a router is much cheaper compared to subscriptions for each person. If you have friends or family coming over, there’s no need for them to have a VPN on their phones or computers, simply connect to the VPN wifi and access the global internet!
Currently we have 3 types of Routers, Asus N16, N66 and the AC68U, the main difference between them are the wifi coverage, bigger RAM and stronger CPU. CPU The executes operating system instructions, such as system initialization, routing functions, and switching functions. The faster your connection the more routing “power” your CPU needs. Additional resources are needed to run a proper firewall (packets filtering), transfer files to USB devices connected to the router (be it a HDD or a printer when print-server is enabled) etc. RAM stores the instructions and data needed to be executed by the CPU. RAM is used to store these components: Operating System: The Router Operating System Running Configuration File: The Astrill VPN program Packet Buffer: Packets are temporarily stored in a buffer when received on an interface or before they exit an interface. RAM is needed for keeping the NAT table, Linux system and its add-ons (print-servers on USB port, samba, ftp server etc) and keeping all the connections under control- router needs to “remember” all your connections- if it runs out of memory connection that is “forgotten” is terminated.
Our VPN router can handle up to 50 devices. In practice though, each router has limits to the amount of traffic it can process while maintaining good performance. The performance of the router depends on the amount of FLASH and RAM that’s available for processing data and buffering video, the wifi signal amplifier, and the CPU. You can see how our VPN routers compare to each other in the listings above.
Yes! There is no way to install a VPN directly on an Apple TV or similar TV boxes, but by connecting your Apple TV to our VPN router, you can watch YouTube, Netflix, Hulu and any other service that requires you to have a foreign internet connection.
The easy answer is 300-2,000KB/s, but the speed of your personal connection will depend on several variables. Some of these depend on the VPN service and router CPU speed while others do not. The following variables will affect your internet speed regardless of your VPN: CPU speed of the router, the faster the better, the maximum speed set by your internet service provider, the activity of other internet users in your area who share an aggregated connection speed (office/apartment buildings and residential compounds), the bandwidth of the site you are trying to visit, national throttling (speed limits) for VPN traffic. Astrill is one of the fastest and most reliable VPN services available today. We typically observe download speeds with normal websites of about 500kbps when connected to a VPN server in the western United States. The second group of variables are related to your VPN service and router. These include: the capacity of the server and the amount of internet traffic being processed by it (less popular servers may be faster), the geographical location of the server and cross-border connections to your current location, the amount of traffic/users on your local VPN wireless network, and the internal components of the router. Please check the technical details and recommendations below to see which router is best for your situation.
TEK-Shanghai provides 3 different routers for you to choose from, as shown below. Aside from the one-time cost of the router, you will need to subscribe to the Astrill VPN service for 3 months, 6 months or 1 year.
