#OnHub  Looking forward to activation of all of the currently disabled components. This device has a lot of potential to replace or complement some of my other devices like the Amazon #Echo, #SmartThings  hub, and #Sonos  speakers.

#OnHub the light up ring is a great idea, but if you place it anywhere above eye level, you can't see it at all. It would be much more useful if there were some lights on the side or if the ring was more like the one on the Amazon Echo which extends over the edge and there is no cover to block it.

#OnHub  Configuration options are sorely lacking and why would they prevent a web based configuration that can be done fro a desktop pc?

I am impressed with this #OnHub  Router so far but I do have some Issues...

1st. What is the expected overall position this device plays in a home network? My initial thought was that I would just replace my existing (Asus RT-AC66U) router with the $199 OnHub, but that changed quickly when I opened it up and realized it had only one LAN side Ethernet port. Ok, no biggie, so I add a (Netgear GS108Tv2) switch for another $90.  

2nd. The next issue I hit was when I attempted to set configurations to replace the settings on the old router. I found no way to change the LAN IP range, or a setting for DMZ. If I was putting this into my mothers home there wouldn't be a problem, but everyone else I know has several components in their network and having to switch everything to a different IP range is a lot of work. I have many devices with dedicated IP's that all had to be put into the new subnet which brings me to the DMZ setting and why I have several machines with dedicated IP's. I have a NAS, home desktops, ip cameras, a home automation hub and an HP laser printer that are NATed and I access  remotely. They did give us the ability to set fixed IP's and the n define port mappings to those devices but I was unable to get any port mappings to save and work. In fact, when I attempted to set a port mapping it said it was saving but when that dialog went away, nothing was in the list. As soon as that was attempted, the router started restarting every few minutes until I performed a factory reset. I assume that the port mapping configuration was saved to Google but not written to the OnHub and every few minutes, google was retrying to set the config on the Hub, causing it to restart again.

So my main Question is this device supposed to be a router or an access point. If it is an access point, what are my best options for a basic router that wont reduce performance and add more expense to the system. The two options I am looking at are to take one of my many retired routers and just turn off wifi, or build a vm instance of dd-wrt x86, sophos or pfsense on my QNAP NAS.

ok, I got my invite, but what can I do if I need 2 phones? I know they do not yet have a family plan, but I would be ok with two separate phones. how soon could I add a second phone to the account after I got the first one activated without having to wait for a fresh invite request? we have a family plan now with sprint and I need to plan how to exit sprint as easy as possible. 

My Invite Status has said 3-4 weeks since June. Is there any way to bump it for attention.
