Does Deco support Ethernet Backhaul
Yes, Deco supports Ethernet backhaul.
The Ethernet backhaul feature allows the wired Deco units to communicate to each other in a manner that is faster and stable compared to a wireless backhaul.
Note: The Wi-Fi backhaul and Ethernet backhaul won’t work at the same time. When two Deco units are connected via an Ethernet cable, the Ethernet backhaul will take effect and Wi-Fi backhaul will not be used.
Step 1 Please set up all Deco units preferably in the same room for the initial setup before finally wiring them together.
Step 2 Connect Deco units via Ethernet cables.
Here are two typical connection structures for Ethernet Backhaul:
Some switches cannot handle and forward the Ethernet II control message that based on the standard IEEE 1905.1 protocol, which is used to setup a wired network, so when a Deco is connected to the switch, the Deco may not work properly. In this case, it's recommended to replace the switch with another one to test.
