My parents live on a boat with wifi at the pier. They have a repeater in their boat but they are looking to get a couple smart devices, such as echo dots and smart bulbs. I understand these may not work properly if not on a local network. Our thought was to plug a router into the LAN port of the repeater and use the wifi on the router instead to handle NAT, DNS, dhcp, etc instead of the repeater, thus creating their own local network. Would this work? Suggestions? Thanks.
