Adding ethernet port without adding switch (second gateway)
Hi all, I need to add a second ethernet port to my eero 6 system, I do not want to add a switch, because the item that needs to be connected in on the 3rd floor (gateway and modem on first + stone house makes it difficult to run wires). Can I add a second gateway and use it as a beacon with a port?
Yup, you can do that. I do the same thing in part of my house.
Plug the Ethernet cable into any LAN port on the main router. Now, plug the other end of the cable into the WAN port, sometimes labeled Internet, of the second router.
