Use Router as Sat

I have Orbi router working well with 2 Sats and current firmware.  Is there any way to use my left over (unused) router as an additional Sat?

If you have the possibility to use a long LAN cable, one could use the spare Orbi router as an access point (AP) to extend the range.

I am currently using this set up:

Router

            --- wired router as AP --- satellite

So far works great
