Using your own router with new Startlink hardware

Has anyone successfully set up an Ubiquiti Edge router to work alongside the new Starlink router with the ethernet adapter? My router gets an IP from the Starlink via DHCP, but I am unable to get to the Internet from the ethernet side. Any other settings that might need to change on the router/clients around default gateway etc.? Thanks

The bypass mode was only recently enabled on the 2nd gen router. Here's the money quote from the Starlink support page on your account at starlink.com ""Bypass mode can be enabled via the Starlink App under "Settings". Bypass mode will completely disable the built-in Starlink WiFi router functionality. An Ethernet Adapter is required to use this feature. A manual factory reset is required to reverse the setting."You'll want to disable the starlink router if you wish to use your Ubiquiti so as avoid a "double NAT" situation.
