Connect to router (RBR50) with ethernet

I am able to connect to the satellite with an ethernet cable; however, I am NOT able to do the same with the router. For a wired connection do I need to set my laptop's IP to a particular static IP?

Hello loremipsum

 

What is happening with your wired connection when plugged into the router? Do you not get a IP address on your laptop?

I did try two different ports. When I was connected I couldn't reach the router's login (orbilogin.com) or get any website to load.

I just connected my FS & AD server to port 4 and made RDP connections, ran speedtest, etc. Worked fine.  48 port switch connected to port 1. Ports 2 & 3 are open.
