Some routers allow you to configure the router as a wireless access point (AP) to extend your wireless range. It will then act as a simple wireless gateway and its sole purpose is to provide a wireless connection.

I guess I’ll hook up a spare network switch and then split OS and security system off of it.
I hope this helps others with the same issue.
