Changing WAN port to LAN

I have a RavPower Filehub RP-WD009 and a NEWQ branded version of the same travel router. I want to use it to provide a wireless connection to a DECT IP phone(Yealink W60B) base that only uses an ethernet port for internet(no wifi).

I set the router as a wireless bridge, and my wifi-enabled devices can use the bridge perfectly. However, when I plug the ip phone base into the ethernet port, the wd009 automatically drops the internet connection from my home router and tries to connect via WAN. I can't change the port usage in the native web app, so I'm looking for another solution.

Is there a way to change the usage of the WAN port into LAN so I can use the travel router as a wireless extender for the phone base?

I have used a Cudy router as a wireless extender for this purpose, but I need an internal battery on the router(not many options).

Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Just look at the ports and move it to lan.

Thank you for your replies. I tried to install openwrt on the wd009, but it seems to have bricked the device. It no longer broadcasts the wifi signal, but the 5G button remains lit.

I got to the firmware upgrade page and tried each of the .bin files, but it doesnt seem to accept the update.

When I tried the kernel.bin, it never reset and the globe button just stayed lit. What am i doing wrong?

Im new to openwrt, so please forgive me lol
