A slow Wi-Fi is something which every person has faced at one time or the other. The way we access the web, has changed significantly. However, the old routers are unable to provide proper support to these changing ways. Now, this problem could be solved with Google’s new Wi-Fi router called OnHub. Google is teaming up with TP-Link for developing the router, which you can pre order immediately.
The demand for this router already is sky-high, which is proved by the fact that its pre-order page is already full. The page shows it is already out of stock.
OnHub Router’s Design
The OnHub router looks different than other routers. You won’t find the usual wires, antennas and blinking lights in this router. It is cylindrical in shape and just has one large light at the top.
As an explanation to the development of this eye-pleasing device, Google said in its announcement post “Many of us keep our router on the floor and out of sight, where it doesn’t work as well. We replaced unruly cords and blinking lights with internal antennas and subtle, useful lighting, so you’ll be happy placing OnHub out in the open, where your router performs its best.”
The cylinder contains 13 antennas, one for checking the signal congestion in the network and 12 antennas for signal. The congestion antenna will be helpful for apartment dwellers who are constantly fighting their neighbors to get a proper connection.
Easy Installation with Mobile App
You can easily install and manage your Wi-Fi connection, using a single mobile app designed for iOS and Android. The app is called Google On app. It informs you about the usage of your bandwidth and allows you to run a network check. You will also get suggestions from the app in case you face any issue while using your Wi-Fi.
Sticky notes and lost passwords won’t be there anymore. Just a single tap and you get your password. You can also text or email that to your friends.
You can use it to “prioritize” devices so that some can get more bandwidth than others. The software will be automatically updated by the router. It has been designed to work with the Internet of Things devices.
If you want to get the OnHub router, you have to pay $199. So, it doesn’t come for cheap. While the router is out of stock in Google Store, you can get it from other retailers.
