DD-WRT Router acting as a Switch and Wi-Fi AP

DD-WRT Router acting as a Switch and Wi-Fi AP

Recently I upgraded to Comcast Business and their modem has a built-in router so I took off my DD-WRT router and moved to a location in my home where I needed more ports and Wi-Fi (preferably without running new Ethernet cables since it's 50-100 foot run through floor and ceilings).

If you're OK with the Comcast modem's firewalling capabilities then that sounds fine. If it were my network, I would disable the modem's routing and do all the NAT'ing on the DD-WRT router because I'm picky about my firewall rules.
