I have an old NetGear WGR614v10 that's been sitting around and I was wondering if I could use it to "increase the range" of my network without using cables. I was able to configure the WGR614 as a repeater but had to use cables to connect it's LAN port to another LAN port of the Linksys WRT160N(as in this post http://kb.netgear.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/965/~/using-wpn824,-wgr614,-or-wgt624-routers-as-an-ac...).

However, make these changes in the WRT160N. Disable UPnP. Under wireless settings, Beacon Interval 50, RTS and Fragmentation threshold 2304. Set to channel 1,6 or 11. Save settings. Now check your signal.

V10 does support WDS which can setup as repeating (two network devices wirelessly connect). Your linksys also MUST support WDS in order make this work
If linksys do not offers WDS (wireless distraction system ) then you will need to buy extender such as wn25000rpt,wn2000rpt,wn3000rp
