route connection through patch panel

I am not sure if this is a good way of doing it. As now we have 2 routers, one server server as NAT connected to the modem, the other one server as AP only. As the NAT device is defective, I am thinking to use the AP as router + AP . But the problem is where the NAT located is good spot for wireless signal. I was told that I can route the modem thru patch panel to one network port on the wall and connect the router there, then route the LAN connection back to switch thru another network port on the wall..... I knwo this can be done, but is it a good idea, any downside or performance issue?

no performance hit as long as wiring is good. downside is someone can unplug it.

No downside to re-arranging your network. Ensure your cabling, patch panel, and jumpers are good.
