I use a Netgear wgr614 router. The computer, modem and router are in basement and cannot be moved. Wireless is okay on main floor but not so good on third floor. I have acquired a Netgear wnr2000 router. Can this wnr2000 be used as a bridge or repeater to extend and increase the wireless range to the first and second floor of the house?

You mean connecting them wirelessly -- probably yes if both models support WDS.

Thank you and yes I did mean wirelessly. Only the wgr614 supports wds so I will investigate other options in regards to
extending wireless range.

Is this possible the other way around?
That link is to connect to the moderm to router by wired, then broadcast wirelessly.
How about Modem has wireles router build in, then connect wireless to WGR 614, then WGR614 wired connect to a computer?
