A router for the new way to Wi-Fi
We’re streaming and sharing in new ways our old routers were never made to handle. Meet OnHub, a new router from Google that’s built for all the ways you Wi-Fi.
Wi-Fi that keeps up with you shouldn’t be too much to ask. OnHub gives you reliable Wi-Fi coverage in more directions throughout your home, which means fast for everyone. Plus it was designed with a sleek, subtle appearance so you can place it out in the open where Wi-Fi can work its best.
OnHub has smart high-performance Wi-Fi antennas arranged in a circular pattern inside its shell.
Constantly works to optimize your Wi-Fi connection. It regularly searching for the least crowded Wi-Fi channel and will automatically switch to if it will improve your connection.
Delivers speeds of up to 1900 Mbps and supports both 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies.
Prioritize a device for the fastest Wi-Fi speed when it matters most, like when you’re streaming a movie from your tablet.
Speaks your language
Other routers make perfect sense, if you speak “blinking light.” OnHub communicates in a language you understand, through its companion Google On app.
The app guides you through easy-to-follow setup so you’ll be online in minutes.
If there’s ever a problem with your network, the app gives you helpful feedback that tells you what’s wrong and how to fix it.
The app makes it easy to get friends online. Text them your password right from the app so you don’t have to scramble for the password sticky note. The Google On app is available for Android 4.0 or higher and iOS 7 or higher.
Keeps getting better
You should never have to think about updating your router, and now you don’t have to.
OnHub updates its router software with newly released features without interrupting your connection.
To keep your network safe, OnHub has software that includes advanced and always-evolving security features.
It includes next-generation technologies like Bluetooth Smart Ready, 802.15.4 and Weave, so that over time it will support a growing number of 'smart devices'.
Do more with Wave Control
Control OnHub with a wave of your hand over the top. For example, wave to prioritize a device to ensure it has enough bandwidth, like Chromecast while streaming a movie.

The peace of mind that the router will always be up to date regarding security as well as not having to reboot is worth the steep price tag. We have the OnHub connected to an 8-port Netgear Ethernet switch (GS208) which is something you'll want considering the 1 and only LAN port the OnHub offers, no biggie here as you can pick up a switch for $20-25.
The only issue we had with the router was configuration (DNS). We noticed intermittent stalls in requests, so disconnecting and reconnecting to Wifi was the temporary fix. The permanent fix? Using the ISP's DNS instead of the router's default Google Public DNS. The Google Wifi phone reps were very knowledgeable and helpful.
If you're having the same issue, do the following...
In the Google Wifi app, tap the 2x2 grid of dots in the upper right, tap "Network settings", then "Advanced networking", then "DNS". Select "ISP's DNS" then tap "Save".
This is a fantastic router. I upgraded from an Archer C7 and the difference in speed and response times is tremendous, to say the least:
I live in a small apartment with a lot of neighboring WiFi interference, and the OnHub's built in congestion-sensing antenna seems to work beautifully in combatting this.
With my new OnHub router, I am now finally able to utilize virtually 100% of my available bandwidth from anywhere within my apartment, without having to switch back and forth between a WiFi and ethernet connection.
Overall, an extraordinarily reliable router that is well worth the investment. Incredibly easy to set up and control with the OnHub app.
Though I have only been using it for a couple of weeks now, I feel that I can confidently say the Asus OnHub router is easily the best router I have ever used.
Setting it up is ridiculously user-friendly. Even as someone who works in the IT field and has no problem setting things up the "old fashioned" way, this is something I greatly appreciate. I couldn't help but smile at how the router actually plays its own musical "tune" as a means of pairing to your mobile device. No having to look up a PIN on the back of your router or anything of the sort.
At $200, the OnHub is a bit pricey compared to most of the competition. However, for how well built and powerful this router is, it is easily worth the investment. As far as routers go, the OnHub is in a class of its own.
Before now, I was using an Archer C7 from TP-Link, which you can find here:
TP-LINK Archer C7 AC1750 Dual Band Wireless AC Gigabit Router, 2.4GHz 450Mbps+5Ghz 1300Mbps, 2 USB Ports, IPv6, Guest Network
I currently live in a rather small ~500 sqft, one bedroom apartment. With so little space to cover, you would think the Archer C7 would be more than enough to suit my needs, right?
Unfortunately, living on the 17th-floor and being surrounded by neighboring wifi networks in literally every direction means dealing with hefty amounts of WiFi interference.
This interference was apparently bad enough that even when sitting ~20 feet away from my Archer C7 router in a neighboring room, I could only maintain a signal strength of around 60% on the 5GHz network band.
While still tolerable, I was not getting anywhere near the performance a $100 1Gbit router should be providing. Nothing I did seemed to make much of an improvement; I updated the router's firmware, ensured the power output for the 5GHz network was set to the highest level supported and tried keeping it locked to the frequency with the lowest level of interference. I even tried flashing the router with OpenWRT to no avail.
As hard as it may be to believe, in all the tests I performed, connections over the OnHub wireless network have shown virtually as good as when over an ethernet connection. Not only in regards to bandwidth but latency/ping as well.
I have attached the results of some performance tests to this review. In short, with my previous router, I was capping out at around 130-160Mbps max, even though my internet plan provides up to roughly 350Mbps in bandwidth.
With the OnHub router, I can easily utilize 100% of my available bandwidth without so much as a sweat. Not only that, while the Archer C7 ended up more than doubling my latency on some connections, the OnHub router performs so well that the difference in latency between it and a wired connection are almost indistinguishable!
Cons / Dislikes
Overall, I do not really have any notable complaints to make.
As more of a power-user, you may expect that the lack of a web interface would bother me. I was a bit skeptical of this at first, but to be honest, most router web interfaces are pretty awful. They are unintuitive, buggy, and far too often prone to various security exploits.
I was pleasantly surprised with the OnHub app. It feels very solid overall. The design is simple but still very aesthetically pleasing, and the app makes configuring and managing the router itself very easy.
One thing I would like to see is support for USB storage. Currently, the OnHub's USB port serves no purpose for end-users. If support for USB storage could be implemented in a way that lets you plug a flash drive into the OnHub router, then share photos, videos, and so on with the OnHub app to have them uploaded directly to the flash drive, I think this would be quite a useful feature to have.
Well, I'm now older and don't care to spend as much time making my internet better -- I'd rather just have it be awesome out of the box. So, I decided to give this a try. To my surprise, the signal throughout my 2,000 ft home is better than before, despite the higher frequency. I assume the huge number of antennas and MIMO are why -- I was pleasantly surprised. Speeds for everything are better throughout the house -- even when I turn off the Ubiquity 11n access point.
My one complaint: I want to get a second OnHub and use it as an access point on the other end of the house so that I have lightning speeds everywhere. As of now, however, the OnHub doesn't have an access point mode (that I know of). I'm not exactly sure what would happen if I installed a second on my network, but it's a fairly expensive router so I'm not ready yet to pull the trigger to find out. There's no indication in the documentation that it would work as such. Either way, I'm pleased (and might augment it with a Ubiquity 11ac AP in the near term).
