Can Panoramic WiFi Pods use Ethernet Backhaul?

The spec says it uses a dedicated 5GHz wireless connection for backhaul.

Can these be configured to use Ethernet for backhaul?


Thanks!

    One of my pods keeps dropping off the network, despite being connected via ethernet back to a switch and then the gateway. I was under the assumption that if there was an ethernet connection, it would use that for backhaul, but I'm now thinking that this is a faulty assumption. 

    I'm trying to get a firm answer on this, as the documentation doesn't specifically say it's possible, but some of the speeds I'm getting when connected lead me to think that this isn't just a wireless backhaul across approximately 75 feet. Of course that's before the AP drops, so I'm just not sure.

    If the WiFi pods can't do ethernet backhauling, I need to either get more pods or different mesh network hardware that can use Ethernet backhaul.
