I live in a two-story home with FIOS service that comes into the basement via Ethernet from the ONT thats located outside the house. I have a Quantum Gateway G1100 router in the basement that I use for wifi and to feed the three ethernet ports in the rest of the house, two on the first floor and one on the second. With the router being in the basement, my wifi is spotty in two of the second floor bedrooms. I know I could go with a mesh network (with backhaul) but instead, I'm thinking of putting a switch in the basement and then putting the router on the first floor. Since it is an open concept home, I'm sure the wifi would work a lot better with the router on the first floor. The switch in the basement would feed the three ethernet ports, one of which would be plugged into the router. I'm not really sure how a switch manages traffic but does this sound like a plausible solution?
