Possible to configure a satellite as wired-clients-only + wireless backhaul?

I have a satellite in one room that's giving me problems with phones & tablets losing their connections because as far as I can determine, the signal overlap in the area is too strong between the main Orbi unit and the satellite. However, I need that satellite where it is so it can provide wired connections to a printer, etc... Is it possible to configure that satellite to use its wireless radio only for backhaul but otherwise act like a wired switch, and disallow any wifi connections to the satellite? If not, is there any known good solution to a problem like this?

Model: RBS50| Orbi AC3000 Tri-band WiFi (Satellite Only)

No way to do that specifically.
