Will a switch work here?
My ISP feed comes into a metal box in the laundry room. They expect me to install my router in that box but I don’t want to because the metal box is not located for optimal WiFi coverage (and IT’S METAL! that can't be good...). Also, I want to put the router on a shelf in the (more centrally located) pantry where I have several NAS drives and a printer. There are three Cat6 Ethernet cables in the metal box going to the pantry, the master bedroom, and the living room. If I put a switch in front of my router will the Satellite TV box, the master bedroom Ethernet outlet, and the router all work as expected?
