Ethernet Backhaul to one satellites

I would like to connect the ethernet backhaul from my RBR50 to my RBS50s, but due to wiring accessibility, I can only reasonably get one of my two RBS50s connected via ehternet. Would someone be able to advise if it would cause any issues to operate in this configuration? (Router + ethernet backhaul to one satellite, and wireless backhaul to the second satellite). Thanks.

Should work fine. I've ran that setup without issues before. I ran my rbs50's wired and rbs40v and rbs50y with them wireless and everything still worked well.

Yes, that will work fine, as that is how my setup is running. I have star configuration with one RBS50 satellite wired to the RBR50 for its backhaul, and the second RBS50 using the 5GHz wireless backhaul.
