Common household remedies request

My Netgear WNDR3800 N600 Premium Edition Dual Band Gigabit Wireless Router has arrived! (Thanks to all and especially Okanagen for their help.) I can install it, for sure, and probably dope out OpenWRT. But my question is:

Now I've got this extra router! Is there some way to make the WNDR3800 the main router, and then set up this second router as some kind of relay station? So as not to waste it? Some (but not all) of the problems seem to be distance related, and since This Old House is so humongous, maybe others are having coverate problems too.

You definitely can. That was the setup I had at my former place, but I set it up a bunch of years ago and will have to look up what I did. Plus, it'll no longer be the way to do it.... I don't remember it being difficult at all. I'll try to look up what I did, in case it's useful.
