    Exclamation Ethernet backhaul

    Model :

    Hardware Version :

    Firmware Version :

    ISP : [/COLOR]

    I see no performance increase when connecting deco's via Ethernet, I don't think is working that way.

    Oh great.. This is why I ordered it for this feature. It doesn't look like you can forward ports either. Guess I'm sending this device back.

    Deco actually supports the Ethernet Backhaul feature.
    However, you need to upgrade to the latest firmware version(170330) at first.

    As for port forwarding, it's not a problem but a new feature for Deco M5. It will soon be added in future firmware releases. Please pay attention to any firmware updates.
    Thanks.

    That's ok I took the system back. It was fast but I had Too many devices that wouldn't connect and no port forwarding. Parental controls didn't work either. I scheduled them but the system wouldn't pause anything.

    1. Too many devices that wouldn't connect
    May I know exactly what devices wouldn't connect?

    2. Parental controls didn't work either.
    Please tell me what kind of demand you want to achieve with Parental Control. And your detailed settings about that.

    1. Netgear wnce2001 wouldn't connect, Brother Printer wouldn't connect, Carrier infinity Thermostat wouldn't connect


    2. Time based bedtime parental control wouldn't pause the devices. I set up 3 different devices and none of them would pause.

    Deco supports WPA/WPA2 as the wireless security type. Please make sure all these devices are WPA/WPA2 capable. If not, try to connect the device to Deco M5 with an Ethernet cable.

    As we know, the bed time is the period during which devices cannot get internet access. The time setting is based on the time of your phone and will automatically switch to daylight mode according to actual location.
    Please check this point. In addition, please also check that if the devices have automatically switch to other wifi signals or get cellular data.

    1. All device support wpa/wpa2. You can't run a cable and connect it to air conditioner thermostat like a nest or the wnce2001. The printer I can connect with cable. 2. Phone time is accurate as it automatically updates the time from the towersLooks like y'all need some beta testers for this product

    Tried Ethernet backhaul in a new installation tonight and it failed. The AP Deco started reshooting as soon as we plugged the Ethernet cable in. The cable previously worked for a homegrown wifi extended setup, but further digging revealed that it only has 4 wires connected, not all 8. Still, Ethernet should work across it I would think. It used to. No?

    setup is:
    floor: modem = router1 = d5 n1

    My first attempt to set up Ethernet backhaul failed. The process of adding the second Deco unit hung at some point after it was recognized. It was at one of those steps that was supposed to take less than a minute, and gave up after 15. Then I was able to connect it with the Ethernet disconnected. Should I just plug in the Ethernet cable and hope that it helps? How do I tell that the backhaul is working. Are there tools that would accurately measure the difference in Wifi speed?

    Ethernet backhaul not working here either. Latest update on all Deco's.
