I have one of these brand new sitting in a box. It came with a piece of medical equipment that my wife purchased, so while it is new, it doesn't have a dedicated receipt and I can't just return it or send it back. I'm wondering if it would be of any use in my current system, but I don't think it does.

Currently we use a Google Nest system for our Wi-Fi, with a Nest router right by our DSL modem, then another router across the house on top of our refrigerator, and an access point after that in the garage. They are set up that way so I can have Wi-Fi coverage in my garage for our security cameras etc. that are mounted on the garage. I'm not sure how I could incorporate it into my network to be of any use, so I should probably just sell it. Unless someone here has a better idea that I can make use of it?
