RBR20 use router as additional satellite

I have a spare RBR20 Orbi Router due to acquiring a RBR50 Router and RBS50 Satellite. I have added my 2 x RBS20 Satellites sucessfully and would like to use the RBR20 Router as an additional satellite. Can this be configured and how?

Model: RBR20|Orbi AC2200 Tri-band WiFi Router, RBR50|Orbi AC3000 Tri-band WiFi Router

Alas, No. An Orbi router cannot be connected to another Orbi system to function as a satellite.

Sucks.

I love my Orbi.

There is a way to convert a RBR50 into an RBS50. its not using stock firmware and there's a chance you brick your device. (google is your friend in this)

Unsure about doing the same with an RBR20 though.

Current Setup: CM2000-> SXK30-> GS716v2-> Arris W31 x2-> Pi-hole->
