  1. Can I use a lynksys Broadband Router as a repeater on a netgear router that is in another part of my house?

    you need a device that can run configured in Bridge Mode; don't think the linksys can do that.

    Look for an Access Point; they all can

    Just check your documentation, or post your router model numbers and we'll try and let you know if you can or cannot do it.
