You must have at least a MATE3.
MATE2 and MATE do not support VFXR.

Since you have more than one device, you now need hub (HUB4 or HUB10.3).
To get into cloud based OpticsRE, you need an internet connection. From your router, you will connect an ethernet cable to the back of MATE3.
Note that MATE3 is now discontinued, so you will have to purchase the newer MATE3S.
