Here's the set up: Cable modem > router - then split to two other devices and another line to a switch which is connected to 2 other devices. The "other" line runs happens to run another device and the VOIP ATA box. Are you saying that I could just replace the router with another switch? Thanks.konsensei wrote: ↑Mar 8th, 2018 9:54 pmWhy then do you need a router? If you just need to add more ports, get a switch.
There's no default encryption for wired, some advanced routers probably would, but not regular consumer grade routers. You are letting someone into your house, and plug in your router, why would you need a password?

I don't think there's a WIFI built into this TechnicolorTC4300 modem.

Family time ... don't want everyone staring at a piece of glass if you know what I mean.Avatar wrote: ↑Mar 9th, 2018 7:37 pmA router doesn't work like a DUMP switch even you remove it's wifi capability. It acts as a firewall to protect your network from pings and attacks. If you don't use wifi, get one with high LAN throughput such as R7000 (at least dual core CPU) to handle and prioritize the traffic. A dump switch won't prioritize the traffic for your VOIP.
And you don't use phone, tablet at home?
