Compactly connect Cable Modem to 8-port POE Switch with DHCP

Last Modified: 2017-11-23
Need to connect cable modem to 8-port POE switch but neither has DHCP Service, necessitating the possible need for a router. Need simple Plug&Play P&P.  Do not need WIFI, since this will be remotely located and wired to POE switch.  Effectively, I need a router w one WAN and one LAN port and with DHCP service.  This goes in a 24" high structured wiring panel.  The switch is a Netgear GS108PE 8-port POE Gigabit Smart Managed Plus Switch.
