hi at the moment i have a cable modem/router and planning to get a m9 to increase wifi coverage over my 2 floors. The m9 could be used as AP (as i need to connect sonos, tv box and console via LAN) and the Deco only got one port left after hooking to router. If i set routher to bridge and use the Deco as router (eg mesh) is there a way to add a switch so i can plug in more than 1 extra RJ45 since the lan ports on my cable modem/router will be rendered useless after setting in bridge mode?

You can add a switch to the Deco M9 plus to provide more ethernet connection. And the operation modes of the Deco M9 plus won't affect; you can connect a switch to it when it works in router and AP mode both. 

 

cable modem router --Deco (AP) -- switch or cable modem router (bridge mode) --- Deco (router) ---switch. 

 

May it help.
