I have Fios and the Verizon Orbi and one satellite.  Is it possible to use the satellite in a wired configuration like the regular orbi?  I can seem to get it to recognize the wired connection.

The Netgear website say it does but has to be upgraded to latest firmware.

I actually got backhaul to work with the stock firmware.  But you have to use the Ethernet port furthest away from the satellite power button.  Opposite the netgear picture.
