Oh yeah, we've all been there. You're in the midst of a particularly dramatic scene in "House of Cards," and suddenly, the video stops. More often than not, it's got something to do with your router — if it's not your Internet service provider's fault, anyway.
Enter Google's OnHub, a router the company claims is the new way to WiFi. That's marketing speak for, "We made improvements to the typical, everyday router." You can pre-order the device for $200. It's set to ship in a few weeks.
OnHub features a modern design that's supposed to keep you from stuffing it away in a cabinet or behind a desk. Because, as you might assume, that's really bad for your WiFi signal.
