Networking help with the inclusion Razer Sila from Singtel to my home

Hi everyone, I am not really good with networking stuff so pardon my noob question.

Currently I have :
1x Singtel black router
1x Singtel black ZTE ONR
2x Airties wifi mesh black
1 x Razer sila (going to get when i recontract one of these days)

May i know what is the most optimal setup for my home? Like should i be running the singtel router in bridge mode, which of the devices should have an ethernet wire running between them which one should be the supplying the ip addresses if they are able to, which one should be running as AP?

My usage is primarily for gaming and for general Internet use amd MioTv for everyone else in the household.

Some context:

The longest ethernet cable in my house is one that is currently running from my singtel router in my living room - > airties mesh (which is in my room about 5-10 metres away) -> MioTV box.

I currently game on wifi but gaming on lan cable would be so much better but not doing so because i don't know how to run a lan cable from my living room router to my pc in my room via my ceiling cornice.

Since you are taking wired LAN connection out of the equation, nothing to say liao.

Just setup your Razer and hope the signal coverage is good enough. If not, use the AirTies to make up the signal coverage.

Not matter how "optimal", gaming on wired LAN always > wireless

It's actually useful if you want to be able to use 3rd party router. On the basic 1gbps plan, your router can only be used as a Wi-Fi access point with a lot of functionality disabled.
