Question on adding router

Since the now hub 2 router just got 2 LAN ports only and I am planning to add one more NAS to my home network.  I also wanna set up VPN if I can add my own router so it's much more easier to stream for netflix or so on.

Just wanna ask if anyone tried to add a router behind now hub 2 router?  Where I can get the credential for the connection to my own router or just plug in the network cable would work?

Thank you.

Yes its possible  to use another device behind the now router such as a switch, or even an old router

 You can also use your own router if it supports option 61/Sky/MER authentication

 Search this site for own router - i use a TP link Archer Vr2800 with no issues, some other cheaper TP link routers should also work, likewise some models from other manufacturers should also work

If it's just the lack of ports, add a cheap switch.

Other switches are also available.
