Duno why I was recommended that. I just need one router in the db to translate ont to data and to all the ports in the patch panel.

Shld I topup to get ac88u to use it as a wireless router and get a 2nd hand wireless router(but disable wireless function) to put in db box
nope, the ac88u isn't worth the money.
how many ports do you need for the wired router?

can try this instead https://www.lazada.sg/ubiquiti-er-x-...-31922524.html

If you still keep some old Routers, just use them to replace the switch 1&2, the Router can be configured as Access Point +Ethernet switch, save power and have extra wireless coverage.

IPTV refer to either Singtel or Starhub.
So you are not on both as their IPTV required config.

Do concentrate on the main connection.
As ports 1 & 2 are needed.
How about the other 3 ports.
If only 1 or 2 of other ports are used, no need worry about switch.
As in the end one port may not be in use at all.
So router 4 LAN ports are enough for now.
Any additional can consider later.
the other 3 ports (port 3,4,5) will not be used for the time being so 4 LAN ports will be sufficient.

Likewise my other 3 data points are not using..

At least narrow down or concentrate on the main objectives first.

so you are saying edge router will be the 'wired router' serving as an AP in the db box together with the ONT while AC1200 as a wireless router (from port 2).

It is good and fine.

Correction.
Ubiquiti ER-X EdgeRouter X Is the main router.
Any router connect to ONT is the main router.

Whereas any routers after the main router have to set as AP.

TS, sorry to hijack your thread but your setup led me to have a query.

Any bro can help me please, if I wish to have android tv, can I set up my network as follows?

FTP----ONR----Singtel router|-----wired connection to desktop in study (via cabled data point)

|-----android TV
Or must I have a switch after the Singtel router?

ONR is router already, anything else is either AP or can be switch also...

The singtel router has 4 lan ports, you can have 4 lan connections. So don't need to add switch, unless you want to have 5 or more lan connections.
