In an Unleashed mesh network. If there are multiple APs meshed together and all have an ethernet connection to the switch. Will the APs use the ethernet as the backhaul or will they continue to use wireless backhaul?

Hi Robert,

In this scenario, they'd use the Ethernet links. BY default, an AP will only look to establish a wireless mesh link if the wired port on the AP lost connectivity.
