B&G radar and MFD and ethernet cable and router

I'm installing our new Halo20+, and running the cable. The installation manual for the Zeus3 MFD refers to connecting various network devices using an "Ethernet expansion device." Can my existing router serve that purpose? For example can I plug the RJ45 cable coming from the dome into the router, and then run another cable from the router to the Zeus3 display at the helm?

I don't have other devices on the ethernet network now (all the other nav equipment is running on the NMEA 2000 network), so if I can't use the router "in the middle" I'll need to plan to extend the cable to the helm.
