Product Scam - does not work and does not perform as sold

This product is a scam.  I pre-ordered and when the core arrived it was not functional out of the box.  Multiple hours long sessions with tech support just to find out you still require a router or the core will not work. 

Strongly do not recommend this product to anyone.

Was told that I was unable to return since it was opened so its collecting dust in the bottom of my trash bin.

The only reason you would need to have another router is if you use a DSL internet connection with PPPOE.
