Can I use the AX4200 RBK753S with an unmanaged switch?

I just hooked up my mesh system AX4200  RBK753S I have the Motorola 7126 modem plugged into the router. I'm wondering if I can then plug the router into the Trendnet TEGS80g switch and then run Cat6 to each satelite from the switch? Will this help keep my available bandwidth for the wifi at max capacity?

You can connect the switch after the RBR router, yes. 

There are some known problems with switches with GREEN ethernet features. So you may see problems if you connect the RBS to this switch.

You can try this switch and see how it works for you. It may work for you if you don't connect the RBS to this switch. Non managed, non green ethernet switches are recommended.
