First post here on this great forum.
I have a Eufy Camera w/Homebase which requires hardwired (ethernet) to the modem. I have an older Eero with one ethernet port which I currently have connected to my AppleTV. Can I take the output ethernet and “split” it between the AppleTV and the Eufy. I know I can use the AppleTV with WiFi but like it better wired. I assume I can use a simple switch. Is there one you would suggest? Thanks again.Much appreciated.
Welcome! Any unmanaged 10/100/1000 switch should be fine for this. I happen to use these Netgear switches. The cable from the Eero to the switch can be plugged into any of the ports.
- Does the Camera have to be hardwired to the modem or does it just need to be connected via wire to a network?
If it just needs to be connected by wire to a network, a switch will work.
- Does it need Power Over Ethernet (POE)?
If so you will need a Switch that supports POE.
Actually, after playing around with it today, I got it connected via WiFi.
Thanks for the help. Again, this is a great forum. It seems as though everyone is so helpful.
