I personally don't have experience with this particular model, but I would guess no. Typically these routers have an 'input' jack for a cat5/6 cable. They are only able to broadcast but not repeat

Have this router. I don't think it's compatible with Dedwrt or lede. Stock seems to run fine though. There haven't been any updates since 2016 though

Yikes. From the TP Link website:

4 × 10/100Mbps LAN Ports
1 × 10/100Mbps WAN Port

WTF?

100 Mbit LAN ports is really dated now in my opinion, as a lot of the internet plans are getting more affordable 100 Mbit will be almost the bare minimum speeds, I'm currently on 1 Gbps.

File transfers between your hosts on your network will be so painful @ 100 Mbit (9 MB/s approx), I can't imagine moving videos or big files =_____= It's better to spend a bit more and literally future proof yourself for a long long time.

It still boggles my mind that the market is still selling 100 Mbit equipment in general, the IC can't really be that much more expensive to be 1 Gbps?!!!
