Hello,
I have netgear N300 router presently broadcasting my wireless signal at work. My house is a the end of the parking lot and i have permission to extend the wireless to that house. The sigmal just barely reaches. But goes in and out. Can I use my linksys e2000 as an AP to extend the coverage to my house. If so HOW. Ive tried really confused.

If both routers support WDS (see specs) you may be in luck trying to link them wirelessly to use the second to boost the signal -- though it's more predictable if they are both the same brand.

Otherwise an ethernet link between the two routers may be the only option:
