Google OnHub – a different kind of Wi-Fi router

Google has partnered with TP-LINK to launch OnHub – a new kind of Wi-Fi router.

“Instead of headaches and spotty connections, OnHub gives you Wi-Fi that’s fast, secure, and easy to use,” the company said.

The OnHub router removes “unruly cords and blinking lights” with internal antennas and subtle lighting.

During setup, OnHub searches the airwaves and selects the best channel for the fastest connection.

A unique antenna design and accompanying software automatically adjusting OnHub to avoid interference and keep your network at peak performance.

“You can even prioritise a device, so that your most important activity – like streaming your favorite show – gets the fastest speed,” said Google.

OnHub lets you set up and manage your Wi-Fi using the Google On app, available on Android or iOS.

The Google On app tells you how much bandwidth your devices are using, lets you run a network check, and if there’s an issue with your Wi-Fi the app offers suggestions that may help.

OnHub automatically updates with new features and security upgrades, without interrupting your connection.

OnHub is available for pre-order for $199.99 from online retailers in the United States, including the Google Store and Amazon. It will be available for sale in retail stores in the coming weeks.
