Thank you for taking the time and reading this, I hope you can give me a green light on my plans here!?
I am getting fiber internet and wanted to set it up the following way. Please let me know if that works and feel free to suggest a different way.
Fiber comes to the detached garage. cat 5e from the box to a 5 way 1gig switch (unmanaged) port 1 - to the house port 2 - (already have) apple airport express with audio for sound in the garage port 3,4,5, for potential IP cam/NVR
In the house cat 5e from the garage to the router/wifi from Xfinity C3000A - should do a great job!? to another 8way switch (unmanaged) port 1 - to the apple tv port 2 - mango console port 3 - upstairs with Time capsule/wifi if needed port 4-8 open for IP Cameras/other rooms if needed
if I have the cable from the street to the garage with switch and then in the house much later the router/wifi that should still work, right? Since ethernet goes both ways??
In general, please let me know a better way if you got one.
Thank you so much in advance. I'll start working on this tomorrow.
