    I want to extend my wireless signal and be able to connect other devices to the internet on the other end of my house. I am using a T-Mobile WRTU54G Linksys Router with a Fi connection. I have another PC and a laptop networked with file and printer sharing working fine expect I lose quite a bit of signal on the opposite end of the house. I have a second laptop that does not have wireless working so I have to connect via LAN to access internet.

    How can I use my other D-Link DI-524 router as a wireless AP (connected wirelessly/not with LAN) to connect the second laptop and extend my wireless signal on the other end of the house at the same time? I don't want to spend any more but hopefully use existing equipment to accomplish this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Nope, the DI-524 has no bridge capability, and it's also not compatible with any 3rd party firmware that might help.
