Starlink with Netgear and Smartthings WIFI

Just setup Starlink. Started by plugging my Netgear directly to Aux port on the Starlink router. At first there was some problems using my Smartthings WIFI system that is operating down stream of my Netgear router. Although the hub would still work the WFI would shut down. No SSID and the plum app could not see Smartthings. I confirmed there was no conflicting subnets. Fixed this by removing the Starlink router and plugging my Netgear directly into the white side of the POE brick for Starlink. This is the second option with Starlink. Now all is up and running. Speeds are about 20 times faster now. Automations are also faster. Just having to deal with a few outages hear and there. Feeling like its even a smarter home with over 100 devices.

@mhatley a bit off the topic, but I am curious as to what download & upload speed you get with Starlink and how does that compare with your previous broadband speeds?

used to pay $105 for 8 down and 1.5 up. Outages whenever the wind blew.
Now it is 99 for usually greater than 100 down and 20 to 30 up. still have outages here and there but they are small. Tends to mess with the smart home a bit but still way better.
