I saw a lot of people want to implement Ethernet backhaul, but it seems still under development.
Let's share your comment about Ethernet backhaul? Why do you want it?
Maybe it can give ZYXEL to launch this feature ASAP if possible. :p

    Uhm, my house is two-storey design with concrete floor. I got WiFi speed around 280Mbps uplink/downlink. So impressive no wire!
    If Multy can support tri-band AP with ethernet backhaul, then it would be a good idea for the small office or restaurant to serve more visitors. Can it be?

    I  have 3 House Levels  and cable from the Ground to the 2 Level. The Wifi Connection is not the best.  The Ethernet Connection will be good for a better communication between the multys.

    Since this thread was started, ZyXELZ have released the 'Multy U' (WSR30), which supports wired / ethernet backhaul.

    Multy X still doesn't support it. Very disappointed.

    Would like ZyXEL to officially announce a planned release date for ethernet backhaul in 2019.

     'Multy U' (WSR30), still supports wired / ethernet backhaul. WSQ50 (Multy X) does not. Any news on what is happening on your promise @Zyxel_Steven?

    Ethernet backhaul for Multy X/Multy Plus is still under developing. If there is any news, we will update it.

    ** bump **

    Any update/expected release date for this feature. I really need it as I live in a very old property with issues of getting signal between my two units.

    Hi Baloo247,

    I'm directly connected my two Multy X nodes via Ethernet cable and it works, for your reference.
    First, you need to setup two Multy X nodes to use wireless backhaul, then use Ethernet cable to connect each other directly.

    Dash - have you validated your satellite traffic is going over the wired connection? Otherwise it'll just be using the wireless. I'd still like a response from the Zyxel team.

    Dear All,

    We have planned to support Ethernet backhaul for Multy X and Multy Plus in next official firmware. And we will keep you posted if there is any update.

    Thanks, any dates? This feature is eagerly awaited. Now we just some for of ips/IDs/malware/AV protection and everything will be perfect and the product will compete with the new kids on the block.

    Is there any documentation/drawing that tells how to connect Ethernet Backhaul ?
