Our routers are old and really need replacing. I am semi savvy with computers, but networking is something I never get involved with. It doesn't help that the person who originally set all this up seemed to have his head on backwards.
These are links to the two routers we currently have. I just do not want to buy the wrong thing.

Main ethernet router - https://www.linksys.com/us/p/P-E1200/
Why it's set up this way, I have no damn clue.
I know the QNAP smart switch QGD 1600P is designed as an edge computing platform. But since it is decently powerful (Quoad core Intel J4115 + 8GB RAM + 2x2.5” +16x1G ports + 2xSFP+). Using it as a core router and network server comes to mind.
Assuming that Virtualisation Station will be available too, I think it will make a nice core setup.
Essentially for small networks offering all that is needed 24/7.
Do you see this a feasible approach?
What else would you run on such a device?
