Using RBR50 as a slave router

I have an SFR Modem/router. I would like to connect the ORBI as a slave device from one of the ethernet lines coming from the SFR Modem/Router. Is this possible?

Yes, just set the Orbi to run as an 'Access Point.'  The setting is in Advanced|Advanced Setup|Router /AP Mode.

I would recommend disabling any and all wireless radios on the main host router if your going to use the Orbi system in AP mode.
