    modem > Deco > Switch. The wired switch connected clients now are able to see and connect to the Deco's router. Enjoy!

    We have had good luck with Modem -> Deco -> Switch.

    The two secondary Decos use the switch for Ethernet Backhaul. And some wired devices (including our wired printer) are connected to the switch via additional switches:

    Code:
    Modem -> Deco (gateway) -> Main switch 
                                          -> Various devices including Decos
                                          -> Dumb secondary switch
                                                                  -> Various devices including wired printer

    My goal is to have 1 DECO connected to the modem and the switch and 2 others that are WIFI (not cabled).

    I wanted to do something like:

    Modem > DECO > switch > printer
    > NAS
    > Ethernet cable to the entertainement room
    > Ethernet cable to the saloon

    and adding to other regular DECO to have WIFI everywhere.

    Well, I did what you said.

    MODEM > DECO > SWITCH > computer 1
    > computer 2
    > printer
    > NAS

    my computers can't print now and can't connect to the NAS.

    Do I need to ressetup the printer and the NAS?

    Thanks,


    François

    Modem->Deco->Switch-> PC(HARD WIRED) ethernet, only getting half speed. This is my biggest issue.
