Adding 2 additional Ethernet ports to the already designed and marketed Mesh Router will neccessitate a product redesign. Therefore, your wishlist submission has been changed to a compilation topic that covers user ideas for a next generation (v2) Mesh Router.
There are lots of POE adapters, so it might work to use those.
I have noticed that it’s rare for any routers to support being powered by POE which makes me think that POE doesn’t generate enough power to do this well especially since the power will continually degrade the longer the cord is.
It would be nice to have more flexibility and fewer cords if it is possible effective.
I’d like to see both (all, if more than 2) ports on the Pro version be 2.5G or better, rather than just the WAN port.
I currently have 1.5Gbps internet, and my new computers have 2.5G ethernet ports for fast access to internet as well as local LAN data (on my NAS), so I can’t take full advantage of my high-speed internet connection and faster local network connection with the 2.5G WAN + 1G LAN ports on the current Pro router.
1 WAN Port
1 10 2.5gbps Backhaul Port
4 LAN Ports 1 Gig are a must to be competitive with other wireless routers on the market place
I strongly recommend 6 to be fully helpful, increase density, encourage wired connections, and reduce the need for external switches or other equipment
