You could but that router’s output is limited to 100 mbps or less. I’m not sure what @RobertWy is referring to.

If you do, you are cascading 2 routing devices which results in an undesirable "double NAT" condition for those "other things". 

Google "double NAT" for info about its potential pitfalls.
