I know the tutorial documentation states to place it close to my router.
I am wondering why that is? Is it just because the docs assume nobody has cabled ethernet / switches in a residential application?
The reason I ask is I want the radios the hub provides as close to the center of the house as possible. In my case that would be in the living room on the console by the TV. I am fully wired with Category 6 cable and have gigabit switching in the house. I have a port sitting there ready for my use for this right now.
Is there any valid reason I shouldn't use my gig ethernet port that is in the living room instead of connecting directly to the router that is in the structured wiring cabinet in the home office?
I wouldn't think so but it might have something to do with the Zwave / Zigbee radios so I want to make sure...
