I have installed a new LinkSys Broadband Router on my system. One end of my house is not getting a real strong signal. I have my previous LinkSys wireless Access Point (not a router, just an access point) that I was going to pack away, but was wondering if there is any way to connect it to the router, extend an Ethernet cable down into the weak end of the house, and boost the signal strength at that end. I can find nothing about daisy chaining these devices together in the LinkSys manual. Thanks.

I do not think you can do that with two routers. If one was a wireless access point than I believe you could extend it with that.
