Managed switch one of the solutions but is expensive. For a simple application like this, you only need a pair of "easysmart switch" from tp-link.
The cheapest is TL-SG105G. See this diagram.
Thanks

From the wan port router can i connect it to bedroom 2 or 3 to set up another AP?

For the managed switch do i need to manually set Vlan for the IPTV and Wifi?

For single data point, you need to have 2 managed switches.

See link for more details;

Starhub IPTV in Switched network - help

Hope this helps you.


Alternately if there are 2 data points in your room and at the ONT location.
You can seek Starhub for the managed switch for using 2 IPTV.
Since ONT Port-2 is solely for IPTV and the switch have to connect to in order to provide 2 out to 2 data points / IPTV set top box.

Thanks i will do there and check it out.

Q:From the wan port router can i connect it to bedroom 2 or 3 to set up another AP?

A: yes, there are 4 lan port, one is used, you can use the other 3 to set up another few APs. If you need more, you can connect a simple unmanaged switch to one of the lan ports.

Q: For the managed switch do i need to manually set Vlan for the IPTV and Wifi?

A: Easysmart switch is very easy to configure. There is a mode to set up vlan based on physical port. As shown in the diagram, port 1 is used for the trunk between 2 switches, port 2 is for IPTV, port 3 is for internet data.

It is cheap too, less than $100 for a pair of them.

Please refer to this thread,
Single LAN cable with Network trunk setup without loop back LAN wire to DB
I setup Dual Managed Switch (TPLink SG108E) to validate the SINGLE LAN Cable bridging system.
It is working very well.


1.Main Router is deployed at Living Hall to maximize the Wifi coverage
2. Singtel Router can be bypassed, IPTV can be at Another area rather than close to ISP provided router.

Thanks i will do there and check it out.
Here is the link to Starhub site on multiple IPTV set top box;

http://www.starhub.com/personal/for-...t-top-box.html

Do spend some time to understand the link provided in my previous post.
All the required settings are mentioned.
As it has been tested and used by some.

For your info.


Happy New Year 2018 ...

Hi all, will be collecting bto keys soon.

For networking, I wish to place wireless access point at the living room TV console + another wireless access point at MBR.

They will be hard wired daisy chained with the living room being the primary channel.

What is the best way to achieve this configuration?

Which ISP and routers model.
Which type of bto HDB, 3 / 4 /5 rms.
TV box is which type.
More details so as all can advice.

To make things easy and flexible, lay at least one more LAN cable from your living hall to DB , try to lay 2 for redundancy backup, since laying on the same location, you can negotiate to pay lower .I paid $200 for 2 more lines back to DB, try doing it together with your renovation to conceal the LAN cables properly.

doing above will help to materialize your setup. The recommendation is ISP agnostic design.

ONT ->main router ->LAN back to DB ->patch cord to MBR ->MBR AP
You don't even need a switch.

I used to run above setup, no switch at DB since my activity area is living hall and MBR.

Thnx for the explanations. I have a few questions ..

1) For redundancy, do you mean to have 3 conceal lan cables to living room?
Also adding points means I have to change the face plate of the data points in the DB right? (currently is 4 connection points i think)

2) I read your diagram a few post above. Is the managed switching trying to achieve the same effect without adding addition lan points?

3) If i set up the primary router inside the DB, ie. wireless access point inside the DB box, it would save the trouble of laying new lan cables, but would the wireless signal be severely affected?

Same here, except I used both Dlink 868l routers.

1) Do confirm if there are 4 data points to living & bed rooms in the db box.
Me bto HDB is in 2013 and only 1 data point for living room.

2) Basically this is for Starhub IPTV as required managed switch at both end of data points.
I had included a link to someone who had done this before.
Do consider overall cost on managed switch & settings Vs trucking LAN cables & data points.
It is different from Singtel Mio tv setup.

3) Router inside will affect wireless signal.
Me put the router outside the db box as both TP & ONT are also outside near db box.


HMAN could advice you better.

Basically adding at least 2 more since you already have one LAN point prepared by HDB. Can mount one more faceplate, no big deal, very simple job , get a paid service to do it nicely.

Unless your dB area is running out of space.


2) I read your diagram a few post above. Is the managed switching trying to achieve the same effect without adding addition lan points?

You need to have 2 managed switch to do the SINGLE LAN trunking to move all LAN traffics. This is useful for those that already done renovation and don't want to lay more cables to spoil the house ID

I do not recommend VLAN to users whom are not familiar with basic network stuff, to save you trouble.

3) If i set up the primary router inside the DB, ie. wireless access point inside the DB box, it would save the trouble of laying new lan cables, but would the wireless signal be severely affected?[because it needs some skill to configure

Putting wireless Router at DB will impact wireless coverage unless it is near living hall .
Your IPTV will need to use one LAN point..
Your smart TV, streaming box all need Internet. LAN connections still have the most stable connection.

As such putting router to TV console is essential unless you just want starhub contents.
