The cylindrical OnHub has a brushed-aluminum base and measures 4.1 x 4.6 x 7.5 inches. Integrated into its design are 13 antennas, which includes 6 each for its 2.4- and 5GHz bands. (There's also an antenna for monitoring network congestion). With its huge array of antennas, the OnHub really shines at long distances and is a solid choice if you want to eliminate dead zones.
In our OnHub router review, the OnHub took about 5 minutes to set up. Like every other device in the Google ecosystem, it requires a Google account. You'll also need to use the Google On app which is available as a free download for Android and iOS to configure it.
We used Ixia's ixChariot software to test the OnHub's performance, which proved solid in long-distance transmissions. It provided 104.9 Mbps of bandwidth at 140 feet, compared to just 19.8 Mbps for other routers like the TP-Link Archer C7.
We also liked its beautiful design, easy-to-use mobile management apps, and useful network monitoring tools. Overall, the OnHub is a solid choice, especially at its new low price.
