I have a Cisco RV08 router (wired) which I have accepting my ISP via a cable modem. Can I hang a wireless router off of one of the Cisco's ports to extend my range?

yes.
you will need to disable dhcp server on your wireless router.
and you will need to plug the network cable from the cisco into one of the LAN ports on your wireless router (not the wan or "internet" port)

some wireless routers even have settings for bridge, but usually u can just do what i typed above.

Thank you Eric. Will I still be able to attach other wired network devices off of the wirless router?
