BlueCurve Pods Ethernet Port

Questions regarding BlueCurve Pods. 

In the Pods spec sheets on Shaw’s website, it shows pods equipped with Ethernet port. Is this Ethernet port backhaul to router enabled ( using Ethernet cable to communicate rather than wifi )

Hey jcloutier52‌,

I actually do this in my home.  The Ethernet port on the Pods can be used to connect a device to it via Ethernet such that the connection relays via the Pod's WiFi:

Internet --Cable--> Modem --WiFi--> Pod --Ethernet--> Device

It's worked well for me so far!

What your describing is his a Ethernet over wifi bridge. What I’m asking is if the pods can be setup to use Ethernet port for backhaul. 

Internet - cable modem -

              Wifi - device

       OR

              Ethernet - Pods - device 

Almost all mesh systems i have looked at that have ethernet ports on there remote wifi expanders will allow user to setup the Ethernet backhaul reducing the wifi congestion from repeating wifi traffic.

jcloutier52‌, the Ethernet-over-WiFi bridge is the only supported configuration for these pods so far as I'm aware.  I've neither tested nor know the specific behaviour if connecting Ethernet from the modem to the Pod but would not expect it to function correctly based on the specs.
