I've recently moved into a house that was wired throughout with CAT-6 cable. But it looks like the previous owner laid it out according to his very specific needs, and I'm having a hard time figuring out how to network it according to my own very specific needs. The background: There's a room in the back that holds the cable connection to the Internet. This, naturally, is where the cable modem is. All the individual Ethernet connections in the house also terminate in this room, which means there are about 15 separate Ethernet cables with male connectors sprouting out of a hole in the wall. Right now, my DrayTek 2110Vn Wi-Fi router (responsible for DHCP provisioning for the entire home network, VoIP, and firewall) is also in this room and plugged into the cable modem. Things would be easy if I wanted to leave it there. But I want to move the router into another, more centrally located room, which would mean treating one of these individual Ethernet cables like a massive extension cord. I'd plug that into the cable modem and then plug it into the WAN port of my Wi-Fi router on the other end. The only problem is, that leaves the remaining 14 Ethernet cables without anything to plug them into. There's no way I'd be able to run a second cable from the LAN1 port on the DrayTek through the house to the back room to accommodate all the cables that terminate there. So my question is, Could I install a Netgear FS116 (or similar) unmanaged switch between the modem and the router, and still have the router function as the brains of the operation? Or am I going to run into all sorts of networking issues due to the mixed WAN/LAN environment and various subnets? A quick and dirty visual aid of my intended setup: INTERNET | | Cable modem | | FS116NA Unmanaged Switch (LAN cables to TV, bedroom, kitchen) | | DrayTek 2110Vn Wi-Fi router --- (LAN cables to Blu-ray player, ReadyNAS server, printer; Wi-Fi to laptops, desktops, iPods, etc.) Thanks everyone in advance for your help.
