I’ve got a version of this, and I run the Ethernet cable to a switch and then run another Ethernet cable to a wifi access point.
Having a switch there means I can also cable up the desktop and my missus laptop if the wifi connection drops out for any reason..
Makes sense. What I was hoping though was that the Zyxel router I already had could do both wifi and wired connection when set up as bridge, or is that not something it’s likely to do?
I’m probably going to have a go at it later this week as I have all the pieces for this particular puzzle, hopefully it will tick both boxes!
I've found the trouble with using stock routers as half of a set-up with multiple wi-fi points is they're not very good at handing the signal over to the other access point so phones, etc which go from one to the other often get stuck on the shit wi-fi.
