Trying to get better connectivity on the front end of my house. Currently have Modem>router>router but am getting about 100 less mbps up front at the 2nd router. Is it possible to go modem>router>switch>router? This would put everything up front hardwired to the switch, and the 2nd router just running wifi for front house devices.

Sure. The first router already has a 4 port switch. If you need more ports, then use a single link from the first router to a larger 8 or more port switch.
