I need to add 3 or 4 Ethernet Ports to a distant room (40 ft from the rest of the network gear)
I have this network setup:
Cable Modem (Spectrum/Arris)
Router (Google Mesh)
TP-Link TP-SG108 Switch #1
| | | | | | |
| <Six Ethernet Cables going to various PC/Mac's>
| NOW I want to add 3 or 4 Ethernet connections to a Room
| further away (40 ft).
In terms of Bandwiidth/Speed, what's the best option or the tradeoffs between:
#1 Adding another TP-Link TP-SG108 Switch downstream, connected to the first Switch?
#2 Replace the Switch with a 16-Port model and run 3 or 4 long Ethernet cables 40 ft?
#3 Add an additional Mesh Access Point connected thru WiFI 40 ft away and connect the Ethernet cables to that?
#4 Other Options?
