Got one for the lady's house alongside an Arris Surfboard SB6183. Maxes out her internet speed cap + 10% more for good measure.

Anyone else having issues with sites being slow to load initially (I'm assuming during DNS lookup) on iPhone via WiFi?
As I understand it, Apple plays a little loose with wifi standards while google sticks with them verbatim. I know older iphones and pre ios 9 devices struggled with some routers. Some of the newer iphones using Intel wifi chips apparently also have some issues but I think I saw that there was a fix either on the way or in a recent ios release.

You might also try tinkering with the DNS settings in the phone or the router. The onhub setup tool allows you to choose your ISP's DNS or googles. Not sure what the iphone offers as far as DNS settings as I don't have one handy right now.

I could not believe how well 2 of these bad boys covered my condo units! From the front yard to the back!! I would buy these again,

but HUGE DISCLAIMER!:
This is not a repeater, you will need 2 units to setup a mesh network!!! These are meant to be connected to your Cable/DSL modem!

It's all done via App with a mobile/network device. I set up 2 of them with my phone by simply connecting 1 straight to my modem. Followed by the prompt of adding an additional device. From there, it will prompt you to turn on your other device, label your device and so on. If I wanted to add another, simply selecting the option within the app would initiate the wizard.

These are reliable and does a good job covering my home. The only thing I'm not happy with is that they don't support MIMO and limit the speed to ~300-400Mbps.

Easy peasy. And if you have a spare (I have a couple) you can drop one anywhere in the house, add it to the mesh, and plug a switch into the ethernet port and plug devices in wired. This has much larger and more antennae than any wireless device and will give much higher speeds.

I have a 3 story house, one router in the LR hooked to the cable modem and a switch and everything hard wired to the switch, one on the 2nd floor in my office with a bunch of stuff plugged in hardwired to it and one on the 3rd floor in the master bedroom again with everything hardwired into it.

Example: I get lousy speed and latency on my xbox 1 when its connected wirelessly with its own internal wifi. With it plugged into a switch into a meshed onhub, speed doubles and latency drops.

So what makes this different from a normal 1900 router?

I had two for a few years, both with ethernet backhaul. Worked pretty well. One died recently and I upgraded my system to ubiquiti unifi gear. For me, the ubiquiti system is working better than the google onhubs, but to each their own. I posted details in a previous onhub deal if you want specifics.

Google/tplink just sent me a replacement unit. I have it (open box) and my original other functioning unit that I want to get rid of if anyone wants the pair... make me a reasonable offer.

As I have an iPhone 7, I don't believe they use an Intel chip. But I do have the OnHub configured with Cloudflare's 1.1.1.1 DNS resolver. Just updated my phone as well, hopefully it'll work a little better now

I have gigablast internet with one of these. Is it worth upgrading routers or mesh these since WiFi realistically won't ever be as fast? 3800 sq foot home

I've had one for a few years now and it is awesome! One of my favorite features is the ability to easily and quickly set wifi schedules for kids on particular devices. If my son is giving us an attitude I can go into my phone and shut down his wifi instantly.

Nope, those don't have an intel chip. What version of ios are you running?

Let me know how it works out. Try the auto setting, the ISP setting and the google setting on the router and see if you can set the phone to let the router provide the DNS.

I'm interested in getting to the bottom of this because I have 2nd gen and latest gen ipads and iphones from 5 to X working fine on mine, but I get DNS problems using comcasts DNS (configured at the router) and googles (4.4.4.4 and 8.8.8.8) occasionally. Not usually with the ios devices but with other devices.

Why does SR71 alway call Newegg Flash "NF" in thread titles?
if you add to cart and look at the item, you'll see why
