Can I completely replace Reliance Jio Fiber Router with my own router?

Jio Fiber Router is probably one of the worst routers I've seen till date. Nothing's organized and the interface is very unintuitive. Moreover a lot of settings are poorly designed.

I currently own an Asus RT-AC58U router (gigabit), and it is simply one of the best routers I own. (Link:RT-AC58U | Networking | ASUS India)
It has all the features I want at a place I'd like it to be. Moreover the router's USB storage functionality also works unlike that of Jio Router.

So I just wanted to ask if it is possible to discard off the Jio Router and instead use my Asus Router instead. I understand that my router does not seem to have a "fiber port ", (the one connected on Jio Router is different from the traditional ethernet port). So is there some kind of repeater device I can use?

You cannot do anything on Jio Fiber as they do not give bridge mode nor allow custom ONTs.

You can.

1. Connect LAN port of Jio to your router’s WAN port. Double nat is there, but rarely an issue.

or

2. Use Asus in AP mode.

That is how I have used Internet all over the world for decades without any issues.Simple and easy. You can turn off WiFi on Jio router.

If you don't game, host a server or have a cctv setup, you can just connect the router to jio's modem with a lan cable and turn off the wifi in the modem. Only thing you can't do is discard jio's modem because you can't use bridge mode yet.

A little off topic here. Does the double Nat scenario will increase the latency for the end devices?
