Using a rbk50 as a AP for a rbk752

Just purchased the RBK742 to replace a RBK50 that stop sending traffic on it's wired ports. Can I use the RBK50 as a AP for the RBK742? Plan to use a wired connection for the backhaul for the RBK50 Satellite and the RBK50 main unit as a wireless AP on my back porch? Any ideas if this will work? Hate to just trash these units because the wireless side works ok?

The RBR50 can be used in wired AP as a 2ndary wifi source. It would need to be using different channels far apart from the RBR750s channels. 

The RBS50 can only be connected to the RBR750 as a wired RBS.
