[Freedombox-discuss] Using Freedombox with a normal router

I have a security question.
Isn't it a security issue, connecting my freedombox to my router?
Most of the recommended hardware include only one ethernet port, so you
have to connect your modem to a router and the freedombox connects to this
router, like your own PC.
My question is, isn't it a potential security breach? For all we know, the
router could send copies of our safely encrypted messages without any of
the security offered by Freedombox.
There is a lot being said about having an open-hardware freedombox and an
open-hardware USB-WiFi dongle, but I couldn't find anything about the
I guess the best would be to have an open-hardware hub and use it instead
of a router.
Can someone recommend on such a hardware?
Or did I miss something in my analysis and this isn't a risk at all?
