Extending wireless range

Specs: Windows XP
I have a wireless network at home that works
pretty well within the house. I have an
outhouse and want to be able to use my
laptop in there, but currently my network
doesn't extend that far. I have a couple of extra
wireless router sitting round doing nothing and
want to know if there is anyway of extending
the range by putting another wireless router on
the edge of my current wireless network... In
other words, can I connect two wireless
routers without cabling them up together?

Depending on the router you have.
But yes.
The router, if supported, can connect as e.g. a repeater, or another methode could be to connect both via WDS (Wireless Distribution System).
If the routers supports one of the above mentioned modes, you can connect with a laptop to the first and to the second router as well.

Please send a reply, if you solved the problem !!!
