Apologies if this has already been answered elsewhere. I’m considering buying a mesh set up to manage the wifi distribution around the house. I’ve read the (very helpful) post about how to set this up with the existing cuckoo supplied modem/router and it’s well within my capability to do it. I’ve one question though.
I have a PC connected to the outside world via a LAN connection provided through powerline adaptors. Am I right in assuming that switching our current (cuckoo supplied) router into bridge mode would disable all LAN ports except the one being used to provide the bridge to the mesh router? Or even if it didn’t, it wouldn’t be advisable to continue to provide a LAN feed from port 2/3 down the PL adaptor?
I’m meanwhile looking into whether it’s possible to get a feed from the mesh router into the PL adaptor be it directly or through a switch, which might be the better solution regardless. Appreciate that might not be something you can comment on but if you do have any experience you’re willing to share I’d be grateful for it.
