Orbi Pro Ethernet Backhaul & Mixed w Non Pro Sats

When will this model support Ethernet backhaul? Also, can you use the Pro router in the same network as a non-pro Satellite? Or are they incompatible?

Re: Ethernet Backhaul & Mixed w Non Pro Sats

Orbi Pro satellites only look for and link to an Orbi Pro router.

 

Orbi Pro offers a 4x4 wireless backhaul as a super highway, but without any wires.

 

Is this a strongly desired feature and what is the use case? It is understood that if there is a cat5 wire, it might be interesting to use it, but why else?

Ethernet for distance reasons for maybe a Orbi satellite that could be like 150' or more from the Orbi router or in a building with very thick walls/interference..
