Non Competing Third Party Router

Hi all,  I am looking to source an affordable third party router for our two MacOS home computers to connect to wireless laser and inkjet printers via WiFi.  This router would  be  separate and NOT connected to Starlink WiFi.  

1.  Would there be any interference issues?  

2. Any router recommendations?  

Thanks!

I'm certain the macOS devices have WiFi. From what you said, it seems like both of the printers may be WiFi-ready, too. Can you not connect them all to the Starlink Wifi? Are the printers on the 2.4GHz Wifi band or 5GHz?

If you just want to create a separate WiFi network that is not connected to Starlink at all, you can use pretty much any WiFi router you want. My biggest concern would be to ensure that the Starlink Wifi and the third-party WiFI are on different WiFi channels. Starlink doesn't let you control that, so you'd need a third-party router where you can control the WiFi channel selection.
