Plugging Firestick into Wireless Satellite?

Is there a benefit in plugging in a device (via Ethernet) to a wireless Satellite? Would it make it more stable? Declog regular WIFI? Just curious. I have the RBK853 and my speeds are great, but not sure connecting a device directly to a wireless satellite would have any benefit?

Potentially it would have a benefit. 

the RBK853 has a much better backhaul than the firesticks wireless so it'd be using that for the speed and not the firesticks.

You can plug any wired devices in to the back of the RBS if you like. Thats why the LAN ports are there for. Flexibility of connecting wired devcies to the RBS.
