If the netgear router has the repeater mode option, yes you can use it but if not, then you may need to buy a wireless repeater instead.

There is the method of connecting is via network cable.  You use the lan port not the wan port and disable its dhcp server.  It becomes a glorified wifi switch.


If you need the how to let us know.  You may also be able to flash it with a dd-wrt version that supports wireless bridging.
