If I could buy a router and modem that I never had to touch again, I’d pay…and pay well. Seems like I have to reset or manage a setting with a much greater frequency than I’d prefer. Of course, I’m loading it down like a pickup truck with about 19 devices. No matter, a better solution has to be out there.

Luma is hoping to sooth my ailment. With its “surround” multi-router approach, its goal is to provide greater coverage and simplified settings. Kind of like having a couple Google OnHubs around your home.
