How to tell if you are connected via Ethernet backhaul

Model :

Hardware Version :

Firmware Version :

ISP :

Here is my current setup.

One cable going from the modem to a Deco, then another cable connected to a switch where the Decos are hardwired throughout the rest of the house.

I think this is the correct way for ethernet...but is there any way for sure so I can tell?

I have yet to see a way to ensure all Decos are connected that way (I actually have 6 in the house)

Thanks,

Ross

Hi Ross, TP-Link Launched a new firmware to add access point mode. You can use access point mode instead of Ethernet backhaul.

you can connect all decos that way according to this FAQ http://www.tp-link.com/faq-1842.html, a switch in between the main deco and other decos are fine

How do we *know* that it's using Ethernet backhaul?

Well, if i connect the ethernet cable, and then check the speed, with by. example speedtest.net, I see a huge increase in download speed, but I agree: it should be visibe in the app, per unit, which connection is used, WiFi, or Ethernet

when the decos are all connected via cable, the " Ethernet backhaul" will be enabled by default, data in between the decos will go through the Ethernet cable instead of wireless.

I get that, but without the Deco's (or Deco app) reporting this, there's no way of knowing that's what's happening... and no way to know if something happens to one of my Ethernet cables, etc.

Yes, all we need is something that tells how the deco is connected...via wifi or ethernet. The deco knows..we just don't :)
