You cannot use the Starlink Dishy (satellite antenna) without the Starlink Router. The Router provides power to the Dishy. Bypass mode on the Router disables all of the WiFi features and makes the Router a pass-through for the Internet signal. First, though, you need a Starlink Ethernet Adapater which is available in the Starlink Store (https://shop.starlink.com/) for about $25. The Ethernet Adapter goes inline between the Dishy and the Router and provides a standard RJ-45 port for connecting a third-party router of your choice.

FWIW, I am using a commercial router/firewall in this configuration and it works like a charm!

A Starlink adapter is not needed for Gen 3 router, correct?
