Yes, if you have an option to run an ethernet cable downstairs that would be the best option, and ensure you connect the cable from the primary router to one of the LAN ports and not the WAN port (in case of your TP-Link, there is no WAN port so its alright)@ijsa
Yeah firesticks don't have any ethernet port, also my family spends most of their time downstairs and their phones got disconnected a lot today. Can I place the TP link router downstairs, run an ethernet cable from the ONT to the modem and have internet that way? In this way, the 2nd floor can still have 5Ghz 100mbps connection(for my laptop), whereas downstairs we can have 40mbps or so which is good enough for youtube/firestick for everyone else.
