Satellite works as router?

Hi,

Anyone knows if the satellite has routing functions on its own? If I plug into the satellite 2 wired devices (a NAS and a desktop for example), are they connected "directly" through the satellite or does the connection has to be routed through the main router unit (thus using wireless connection when)?

Thanks!

Two devices wired into the same satellite communicate directly. They communicate via the switch built into the satellites.  There's no routing involved, actually.

 

Same thing for two devices wired into the router.
