  1. I assume what you mean is, you’re trying to access the open wifi signal from a neighbor or nearby cafe.

    All you need to do is configure a wireless ethernet bridge and connect it to the WAN port of the Linksys.

    {open wifi}<-- wireless -->[wireless ethernet bridge](lan)<-- wire -->(wan)[linksys]

    There are many sources for such wireless ethernet bridges, here are some examples:

    In each case, you'd configure it as a client bridge (aka, wireless ethernet bridge).
