I wanted to install a mesh wifi in my house to replace a system that uses two separate wifi routers to create a LAN network and two wifi zones. I’ve also been looking at various smart devices, primarily heating and lighting so i finally decided to go with Smartthings.
When i first started looking i could get a set with 3 hubs at a reasonable price and they had two LAN ports so that Ethernet could be used for backhaul and i would also be able to connect a gaming PC to one of them to use ethernet.
Now that i’m ready to get started the sets are out of stock on Amazon and suppliers that do have them are charging at least 50% more so i decided to buy the hubs individually and i bought two from ebay.
The two i bought so far only have one LAN port so i can’t daisy chain them together for ethernet backhaul and also i can’t connect a gaming PC to the one at the end of the chain. I could go down the route of using simple switches or splitters but am i going to hit other problems?
Have i bought the wrong devices to use to create a mesh wifi network and use as a network for smart devices.
The devices i have are
