    You can get PCIe cards with multiple Ethernet ports. Then use something like Pfsense to create a nested switch. But I think it would require its own CPU.

    PiHole may be able to handle all that now. The software has really come a long way. I'm waiting for someone to find a way to load Pihole on retail routers ala DD-WRT.

    Also yes. When I poked around last night, there were multiple Thingiverse files for nested Pi in a PC

    I think I'm going to go with a POE hat and switch. It'll give me an easier way to expand and tinker and reduce the wiring inside the already small case.

    Also I tend to fuck up a lot and occasionally have issues shutting down the pi using the included power switch, this will let me effectively unplug it and POE hats have cooling/fans, which seems like a good idea in an enclosure shared with other things that generate heat.
