    Is your WAN interface the same as 192.168.100.x? if it is, then you should have a route to the gateway.

    WAN Interface is assigned via DHCP from Starlink.  It is NOT 192.168.100.x/24.  It is a publicly accessible IP.  Again, this is just a management IP, not routable.

    If this is a hidden IP inside the modem itself, I am wondering if you can add a route natively on Linux to make this work. (I don't have a system with me, so not sure if it will work).  

    ip route add 192.168.100.0/24 dev eth0

    If this command does work, is there a preferred place I can add this command to be executed at startup?  Possibly delayed?

    Ok, I fiddled around with sshing, etc... what worked was not sshing in at all.  Using the Routes applet, I added a route matching the ip range of the starlink out of band management, 192.168.100.0/24, On network LAN1 (inside lan) on the WAN interface "Starlink" and there ya go..Joe's you Uncle, it worked.  I can access stow, debug info and such....Thanks!

    Hi, I am new here and am considering buying a firewalla to try it out, Someone posted here earlier that they managed to bypass the starlink router , I am not exactly sure how he did it but i am guessing He had used the starlink adapter to bye-pass the router.Please i need someone to help me clarify.

    Cheers

    I also just purchased StarLink... What type of setup would you suggest or what Firewalla would you suggest to purchase to have the great functionality that it brings?

    The Gold series is likely a better choice. You can run dual WAN with it 

    • standby/failover support
    • route low latency traffic to a slower landline (DSL ...)
