Over the summer we got a first look at Google’s plans to fix you crappy home networking situation. The first OnHub router, manufactured by TP-Link, was pretty cool–and very expensive. Now Google’s got yet another OnHub router, this time made by Asus. It’s even more expensive.
Google OnHub is a great idea on paper. For the most part, home networking is a headache. When your wifi’s not working, you never quite know why it’s not working. All you get is blinking lights that don’t tell you anything. Basically your only recourse is to unplug the router and hope that firing it back up solves the problem.
