Question about Belkin F5D8631-4 Router (F5D8631au4A)
Hello, I currently use a Belkin F5D8631 as my Modem Router. I have a spare Belkin F5D7633. Can I use the 7633 as a repeater/bridge to extend my wireless range? If so, how?! Thank you

It will not extend your wireless range. If you connect your spare Belkin F5D7633 to your Belkin F5D8631, one of them would have to be set to "bridge mode" or a pass through modem so that there will be no conflicts as to which modem will receive the ip address from the network. If you set your modem/router to bridge mode, it would disable its wireless function because it will only be a pass-through device.
If you want some tips on how to improve your wireless range, check out this site http://www.microsoft.com/athome/moredone/wirelesstips.mspx. Hope this helps.
