I have the following setup for my house:
- Cable modem (upstairs)
- Ethernet upstairs / main floor / basement
- Bunch of old routers
I'm trying to figure out what the right layout here is. I was thinking of putting the OnHub on the main floor, so that it's central (can reach basement and upstairs), but then the cable modem is upstairs, which means I need some switch upstairs (old router). I can do DDWRT on the old router, and try to bridge them with the OnHub, but I feel like I'm doing something unnecessarily complicated.
Alternative #2, put the OnHub upstairs next to the cable modem - but then does it reach the basement? And then do I need to have a second router for the basement as an extender?
