For this matter, if you'd like to get the full potential of the Linksys Velop as a mesh system, it's recommended that the Velop is the main router of your network. But if you'd prefer to retain your current setup, make sure that the main router and the Velop has different SSID and channel so it'll not be conflicting.

I'm not sure this this reply answers the original question about how to connect the Velop in brdge mode using LAN backhaul. I would like to do this. Is it possible?

I have a similar setup to OP with a 3 node Velop system
with one wired node and one wireless node
Connected as such
I have the main node setup in bridge mode
When I view the system info script I can see that it lists both additional nodes in the backhaul report area bh_report.
bh_report Node (MAC) NODE IP PARENT IP Intf. Chan. RSSI(AP/STA) Speed State ------------ --------------- --------------- ----- ----- ------------ --------- ----- 14XXXXXXXX72 192.168.1.208 192.168.1.210 eth0 wired 0 202.71700 up 14XXXXXXXXBA 192.168.1.209 192.168.1.210 5GH 149 -58/-63 91.17400 up
if the nodes are acting as access point wireless extenders, would it still show valid results in the sysinfo script under bh_report?
My experience with extenders, a wireless device will see both the main AP and the extender as different networks even when they share an SSID. When I view the list of available networks on my android phone, iPhone, and Win10 laptop, I only see my network SSID listed one time. When running Wifi Analyzer on android I can then see the additional Nodes/AP's broadcasting.

Hi, fortillian. The sysinfo results should show valid results even if the nodes are acting as access point/wireless extenders.
