Can I assign a Wired LAN port to the "guest" network

I have a MagicJack VOIP device plugged into a Wired LAN port on my Orbi RBR40 base station.  I'd like to treat it like it's on my guest network, specifically, I'd like to give it internet access only and block access to all other Local LAN devices.  Is this possible?

You could try connecting it to the LAN port of a client bridge (or sometimes known as a media bridge) that is connected to the Orbi base station via guest wifi. This seems to be able to achieve what you wanted.

No. Guest Network is for wireless clients only.

Don't like the idea of having to plug in yet another device, nor deal with the potential added latency of another wireless link in my phone connection. But if the Orbi can't isolate wired ports at all, this does indeed seem like the next best thing. Thanks for the suggestion.
