I need to extend my signal and trying to do it as cheaply as possible.

My ISP is comcast using their modem which has a wireless capability.

In some area's of my home, the signal is rather weak.

I have a Zyxel 550 wireless router that is a couple years old and not being used. Was told I could adapt this router into an extender wirelessly...

anyone know how to do that?

What does the ZyXEL 550 User Guide say about Repeater or Range Extender Mode?

Then it may not include that mode. Look through the configuration pages and/or see if there is third party firmware (e.g., DD-WRT) for it.
