I did the same behind my entertainment center. 5 port gigabit switch. PS3, PS4, Apple TV, retropie, apple tv plugged in. Only have the pi plugged in for file transfers and setup. No other reason really.
Did you ever test your connection speed? My wired connections are obviously faster. Both are wired now. My Xbox One gets 180 mb. And the Switch only 60 mb download. I have The Xfinity 150 mb service.
Just curious. As to why the Switch only gets 60. WiFi only got 10 mb.
I’m very happy with it to say the least. I’m gonna play super smash bros. Online.
