I am planning to add a wired router, not splitter or switchbox, but actual wired router to an existing free output from current wireless router. Already using the other 3 wired outputs. Long story but all incoming internet access (modem) is at end of long ranch home with foiled insulation & wireless doesn’t cover other end of house. Using newer Nighthawk AX6 AX5400 WiFi Router. In process of wiring (Cat 6) from this end of house to 2-3 TV’s to eliminate cable boxes & use apps to watch tv. I’m interested in a decent wired router brand & model; need 3-4 lines run from it.
If you plug router A (WAN) into your modem, then router B’s wan port into router A’s switch port (LAN) then every device connected to router B will be double NAT’ed.
INTERNET < ROUTER A (192.168.0.x) < ROUTER B (10.0.0.X)
Thus creating 10.0.0.X IP to be translated to 192.168.0.X before it hits the internet. This can cause latency issues definitely with VOIP audio.
If you simply need more ports, you definitely need a switch.
