Can’t I just plug an old router in via an Ethernet cable into the main cable modem and create an access point ?

It depends on the router, a router isn't just an access point, it has that element obviously but as far as it is concerned it is designed to route traffic. You'll need to change the settings on it to convert it into a AP only. Some have a dedicated AP mode. Tell us the model and stfu.

That?s what backhauling is, just plug the Ethernet cable in and STFU!

Just buy a cheap mesh network off Amazon, if you can choose one that allows Ethernet backhaul, if it?s shit return it and STFU
