I actually have a dlink 1024 unmanaged switch



Just a little uncertain if when I make the netgear an AP does that mean ports 1-4 become unusable? I know it would be easier if I was home but I'm on vacation and this is really helping me keep my sanity. Disney will drain you for sure. Lol

I won't disagree with pcdoc that you might get away with 2 switches. It's just that 1 switch pretty much ensures you won't have issues, at least if it's a decent switch, which yours is.

So pfsense to switch
