Wireless extender that has an ethernet input (access point)

I have a RBR20 that gets input from my Verizon Router.

 

I have a number of RBS50v2 satellite's throughout the house, which work ok.

 

I now have the opportunity to have one of the satellites hard wired, so it gets the full speed from the router (which is crazy fast).  Is there a way to use one of the LAN ports on the satellite as a WAN port to have the internet come directy to the satellite.  In ortherwords, I would like to use the Satellite as an access point.

 

 

Thanks

The RBS50v2 can be hardwired to the RBR20, which is connected to the Verizon router.  This should increase speed at the satellite.

Orbi satellites can only function as satellites.
