The most frustrating part about computing is Wi-Fi and internet availability. Remote areas are always in the dark because of limited internet connection and routers are out of reach. Most cyber cafes enjoy the monopoly of being the only open space that connects people using Wi-Fi. Google wants to change that, the tech giants has partnered with TP-Link and is releasing OnHub.
OnHub has an amazing design that is smart and sophisticated. The equipment can be left in the open but other routers are usually hidden in a corner somewhere limiting Wi-Fi distribution. OnHub has six 2.4GHz and six 5GHz antennas positioned around the outside of the device in a circle to enhance connectivity around the house.
The antennas are also Bluetooth Smart Ready. The router has six broadcast antennas and a congestion-sensing antenna enabling OnHub have a speed of 1,900 Mbps over Wi-Fi. It also handles all of your security for you with WPA2-PSK encryption.
Immediately you buy it, the first thing it does is determining the least busy Wi-Fi channel in your house, and then continue to change channels as needed. It also actively prioritizes traffic, so you can set it to make sure the computer you play games on never waits for its share of the bandwidth, or the home TV media streamer always plays well.
The router is more like a computer that’s why it can do more work than a normal router. It has a dual-core 1.4GHz processor and 4GB of eMMC flash, it can run sophisticated diagnostic software and receive major updates over the air, and it doesn’t need to shut down wireless broadcasting to do any of it. The router has four colored LED rings that alerts the user in case of any problem. Reports Digital Trends.
The router is managed by either iOS or Android which makes it easy to use. You open the app and explore a number of features and customization offered by OnHub. By using the App you can access not only the administration panel and settings for the router, but also a number of other useful tools. For example, you can select a router manager who will be able to help troubleshoot the device from anywhere, so long as they have an Internet connection.
The most interesting feature is the ability of the router to correct connectivity issues. What you do is check Network’s integrity and check which devices are holding back the bandwidth. If you need to share a password, you can do it quickly from the OnHub app to get your friends connected.
I think this is the most secured and provides the best functions as compared to other routers that people can easily hack in.
