Access Point with Ethernet That Works Well With Orbing RBR50

I recently ordered an RBR20 to extend my network into my garage. I already have an RBR50. When it got here I realized my mistake. 

 

My need is to turn wifi into ethernet for a Hue hub that I need closer to a device outside of my house. 

 

From what I gather, I am looking for an access point with ethernet that can do this. Does anyone have a recommendation for an access point that works well with the Orbi mesh system?

 

I do have a satellite in my garage already, its the model that plugs in directly to the wall and provides better coverage but does not have any ethernet ports.

RBS20, RBS40v, RBS50, EX7700 and EX8000 all have LAN ports.

One of the other pieces of information I left out was that I was hoping to get something that's less expensive. 

 

It looks like the RBS40v is on fire sale at Amazon right now. 

 

I'm gonna try that route. 

 

Thanks for the quick reply!

Be sure to post over in the Orbi with Voice for that model RBS:

Good Luck.
