Just a quick question as I'm not sure myself, at home we have our ONT in the garage(back of property) and a 8 port patch panel. We want all ports active to take advantage of wired gigabit speeds etc(no idea why there's no switch installed to start with, right now it's just the ONT plugged into 1 port of the patch panel which is where we have the modem/router in the house).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Can we connect a 8/16 port switch to the ONT(then have our modem/router in another room of the house centrally) or does the modem have to be first?

 

 

 

ONT>Switch>Modem in another room or ONT>Modem>Switch>Install a central AP?

 

 

 

Also if it's the second option then how do we have our landline plugged in at a reasonable location, presumably the patch panel can do both(ie go modem phone1>patchpanelport or something?

 

 

 

Thanks

Are there two ports where you want to put the router? You could have one going from the ONT to the router's WAN port and one going from a LAN port on the router back to the switch to feed the other ports

Yes we do have 2 ports in 2 rooms so that is indeed possible and the ideal solution for us. Thanks for pointing that out!

Where do you want to put the phone? In this case the phone would probably have to be next to the router unless you had 3 ports in one room

We are fine with having the phone plugged into the modem/router in the same room.
