Kind of, if router "B" is placed in a location where it picks up a good signal from router "A", then router B would broadcast it's own wireless signal which if closer to your remote computer could then be used. To transfer internet from one router to the other can be tricky. Look up Port forwarding. You will need to port forward from router A to router B, and then to the computer internal IP. Also there are range boosters, provided your antennas on the router screw on/off, they attach to the antenna lead and blast the signal, many hotels/motels use them or people like yourself. They are reasonably priced. Sometimes a "gateway" will work to extend range. Of these options the range booster's requires no additional configuring, can blast the signal quite a distance (depending on the size booster you buy) and will not have you figuring between 2 routers if a problem arises. Make sure you secure the wireless so everyone in the area isn't picking up and using your signal.
