I've watched those, and it's PoE communication to the dish, and there is a 
processor on the dish with a serial console.

I haven't seen any follow-ups where anyone has gotten a login to the dish or has 
sniffed the traffic between the dish and the router.

I haven't seen anything that would show that the router has (or doesn't have) 
any awareness of the satellite network.

That's why I was asking about sniffing between the devices to see what's 
happening there.
