    This should work MODEM > FIREWALLA > CISCO SWITCH > WIFI ROUTER & WIRED DEVICES

    Your WiFi Router needs to be in bridge/AP mode.

    You would need a managed switch only if you plan to use VLANs to separate things like IOT devices from your phones and PCs. Otherwise, a simple, unmanaged switch will do the job and save you a few dollars.

    Personlly, I like the managed switch idea because I'm a nosy little so-and-so and want to know what makes those blinky lights so pretty.

    Plus it faciliates VLAN operation and helps me diagnose networking issues, besides other stuff.
