Connecting a Netgear Switch to a router wirelessly
We have opted to upgrade our broadband to a quicker fibre connection.
The current router sits in the centre of the house providing wifi and is connected to a Netgear ProSafe 24 Port Gigabit Switch which distributes throughout the house for smart TVs, Sonos, Synology NAS, etc.
For the installation, we would need to move the router from its current location to where the fibre enters from outside. The switch has to remain where it is.
I want to connect the switch to the router in its new location. Running an ethernet cable from the router to the switch would be quite difficult.
I wondered if it is possible to connect the switch to a wireless access point?
Would this be the correct piece of hardware? What specifications should I look for? Should I use another router to manage the switch?
Any thoughts or suggestions please?
