RBK750 wired backhaul from a wifi router to the RBK750 satellite

I have a remote building that I would like to get wifi in but I don't have another RBK750 satellite to put out there. Can I use my older wifi router and connect it with cat 6 to one of my RBK750 satellite's? If so anything special I would have to do?

You should be able to do that fine. I've connected extenders/access points to my satellites before.

Any settings that I have to change?

You don't say what the spare router is, but generally to do what you describe, wired into another router, you should put the spare into Wireless Access Point (AP) mode.
