Connecting a SmartTV to a plex server via internet-less home router

Forgive me if there's a guide i haven't seen.

I'm new to plex, just having set up a server on my ubuntu desktop. I've connected the server and my Samsung SmartTV over the internet, and my plex servers currently updating all the metadata.

I was wondering if in future it would be possible to connect my tv to my plex server over a wireless home network via an old modem router i have ( so tv ---> modem/router --> plex server). I want to be able to stream and access my content without the use of the internet, reserving it for the occasional updates.

Is this possible?
