can i put a switch before router?
I have microwave internet that comes through a dish and therefore the Ethernet cable goes straight form the dish into my living room and therefore I obviously can't change this cable as one end is in the dish. if I was to put a switch on the end of this cable and run another cable to where I want the router to be should this work as a means to extend this cable? obviously I'm not expecting to plug anything else into the switch as I know it will not be part of my LAN. Failing this would homeplugs do the job?
