I'm looking at a sher. ly cloud box..  Pi was a tad too slow,  and something bothered me about the pogo plug...  The specs seemed to be slightly underpowered...  Other device s were the transporter by the drobo people and Tonido plug which hardware isn't supported anymore...

Yup here doing that with my PFSense firewall now running with a quad core Intel and 8 Gb NICs.

The OpenWRT modem stuff is well documented.  That said though wireless 3G/4G transports are much overly subscribed and it is wireless.

Just this past weekend my son and I were comparing my broadband ISP versus wireless 4G ISP connectivity.

Locally here there has been a push of sorts for wireless 4G ISP connectivity.  It is better than satellite.  The "sell" is fast speeds; but mostly that lasts only for a month or two for the quick sale; then slows way down. 

One issue he noted to me was that he can stream stuff like Netflix; but if someone else in the house uses the 4G ISP connection then the stream staggers and flickers.
