What is this box ? It is router or switch? You want to use only the enclosure or the functionalities of this “box” ? Can you please post pictures and give us more information about what you have :slight_smile:

I hope you understand i’m french and it’s difficult to explain mi idea in english… ^^

ah i think i understand you, i don’t know if you can make a local server with a router, but i dont know, try to find it in internet.
Btw, having another router in case your existing one fails is always good.

Sorry for the late response. Can you make more detail picture of the device. I will then make a search and tell you the exact features and possibilities that this device can do. Btw what is your location? Where do you post from?

As @ognqn.chikov said if you can post the model of the router we can get a better idea what the device is and what it’s capable of.
