It should work with Exede, but it isn't what I would choose for my home network. It only has one Ethernet available for a wired connection, which may not be a problem for you. It can only be set up and configured using an Android or iOS device, and cannot be configured using a computer. Another thing that would concern me is that it must be connected to a Gmail address, and it is in constant contact with the mothership at Google, which will use your very precious bandwidth as it reports in and does its handshaking.

The reviews I found online were kind of mediocre, which is a flag to me anyway. It appears to appeal to those who want their router to "look" techy, but not really being concerned about functionality.

Just my opinion, but to answer your original question, yes, it will work with Exede. Almost any wireless router works with Exede.

I have a Asus RT-AC3100.
A little pricey but has great range, a user friendly GUI and tracks data usage by device IP.
If you are going to switch then switch to something that is functional.

I am using an ASUS RT-N66U. It is a few years old, but still working just fine. The ASUS RT-AC3100 is a good one, if I were to replace mine, I would go with that one, because it has better data tracking software. The most complaints I have seen on here about dropping the internet are with Netware and Linksys routers.
