I need to extend my “wired” network from my DDWRT wireless router (ASUS RT N-16
) to two opposite ends of my house and am looking for a simple approach to this.
I was thinking of running “two” network cables one end of each connecting to the router and the other end of each connecting to a small 5 port switch.
My questions are:
1. Are there any disadvantages of adding two 5 port switches to my network?
2. I am also thinking to possibly add two small "wired" access points (NETGEAR AC750
) to each of the switches. Will this have any disadvantages?
Do note that I plan to only have one subnet on my network.
