RBS850 which port Connect Ethernet?

Hi - when hard wiring an Orbi rbs850 satellite to the router does it matter which of the four Ethernet ports on satellite you use?

None seem marked with an inbound feed indication like with router?

Glad you got it figured out. Might mark it solved so others aren't still trying to fix it

Current setup: CM2000-> RBE973S-> Trendnet TEG-S380-> GS716T-> pi-hole
also in AP setup: RAXE500->EAX80
1.4gig download/50mbps upload from Xfinity

You can hardwire (ethernet) your backhaul to the Orbi satellite using any of its port: https://kb.netgear.com/000051205/What-is-Ethernet-backhaul-and-how-do-I-set-it-up-on-my-Orbi-WiFi-Sy....  On the Orbi router side, as the picture shows connect to one of its LAN ports (not the WAN port).
