So it's done. The switch is inside the room and got 2 more wires done for laptop and till the AP. Got charged 50/m for 68m, 20 per ethernet switch/port, 980 for correcting my already installed IP camera system and GST at 18%. Now the LAN is giving me decent pings, jitter is low and overall seems to be quite good. 1 thing left to test out is the laptop to laptop transfer over the LAN.
Oh and the unmanaged switch I bought works perfect too.
So about 1 week in and getting a wired connection done has been probably 2021's best decision of mine lol. I knew it would help but the reduction in my frustration while working from home over a wifi connection has been reduced post the LAN setup.
All 5 ports on the switch are now in use, and I find there to be no need for more ports. Buffering/lags on TV, PS5, YT, etc have reduced.
