I have two Linksys BEFW11S4 wireless routers and I am trying to figure out if there is a way to use one as a repearter to extend the range? I haven't tried anything yet. Can anyone help with this or is it even possible? Thanks!

Yes, I believe it is possible. I think what you would do, would be to set up the first router just like you would want it. Then, place the second router where it needs to be, enter the configuration of the second router and look for a tab somewhere at top labeled "AP", (i think). In there, you should have different options, one of which is repeater, and there should be a button that says, "Site Survey", run that, it should pick up the first router, then you select it, it assigns it that MAC address and repeats the signal.

I'm terribly sorry if all this information is wrong, lol, I am going by frequent configurations of Wireless Access Points, but I believe that the AP part is the same on the router.
