The remote nodes will automatically look for the main router unit via the ethernet connection. If it finds the router it disables the wireless mesh connection and extends the network via the ethernet cable. It will still allow devices to connect wirelessly, but the "backhaul" out to the main router (and Internet) is done over a much faster wired connection.

This means faster network speeds while still gaining the benefits of wireless roaming around the home.
