Interested in buying a Peplink Balance 30 for a planned DSL/Sat/4G configuration.
DSL modem is in my server room beside where the peplink would be going.
However, both the Satellite and 4G modems would be put in the attic.
There’s two RJ45 ports connected with CAT6 back to the server room on the ground floor which would be fine but for the fact I have a network-connected security camera PVR using one of the ethernet ports already.
All cables run back to a CAT6 patch panel, then a Netgear 24 port gigabit switch.
From what I can tell I’d need to be running the ethernet cable directly from the Satellite and 4g modems in the attic into each of their own ethernet ports and then patching those directly into the Balance. This would suggest I have to disconnect the PVR in attic to free up one of the ports.
Is it possibly I could put, for example the PVR + 4g on a switch which uses one port, then the Satellite modem on the other switch?
Right now I’m thinking that I need to maybe use an alternative to the CAT 6 for the PVR, such as powerline ethernet (sockets available in attic) or a small wireless router.
Don’t hesitate to ask for more info.
