Can I use a Range Extender in this setup?

Currently we have a SXRN3205 and FVG318, with cable between the two. There is one area of the building that can't get wifi signal and I would like to know if a WN3000RP could be used to extend the range of the FVG318.
The SRXN3205 is the DHCP server and the FVG is just an access point.
When I try to get the RE to connect, it just sets itself up to the SRXN3205, but the signal is very weak.
If it is possible, how do I get it to connect to the FVG318?

The problem with that is the main router is too far away from the area that I want to cover. The FVG318 is the router that is closest.

So are you saying that it is not possible to boost the signal from the FVG318?

If antenna disconnects then you can so if not then you know the answer
