I recently upgraded my Internet to 60Mbit, but unfortunately my modem is unable to deliver these speeds. (It works fine when I connect a device with Ethernet). Hence, I’d like to purchase a WiFi router or Access Point.
This AP should be able to support up to 15 devices and should also support technologies like MU-MIMO.
Also, currently I’ve connected three devices (desktop PC, NAS and PiHole) via an Ethernet cable. As to my knowledge, if DHCP is turned off on the AP, it should work as a switch and I’d be able to reach a notebook connected via WiFi with my desktop PC without any issues, shouldn’t I? Furthermore, I’m toying around with the idea of setting up a firewall. If I don’t invest in one with four ports, purchasing now an AP with 4 LAN ports might save some troubles in the long run.
Do you guys have any recommendations? I’ve taken a look at UniFi’s APs, but many of them do not have 4 LAN ports but only 2. So, any ideas would be welcome
