    Just a quick question: has anyone ever done this or just know whether it is safe to update a router's firmware from a computer that is connected to a home gigabit switch which is connected to the router (obviously all hardwired)?

    That's how I update my gear and I've not had a problem. If you do a hard reset or NVRAM erase and the switch's IP changes you may have to manually reset your computer's ip address since it will not see the link drop due to the switch.
