i have a wifi network at home -> works well. I think it's set up to use WPA-SPK or whatever that funky wifi protocol is. (But i can change that, if required).

Anyways, it only gets to half of the house because of interference (eg. fridges). So, i was hoping to extend the home wifi network.

The IT guys at work have a spare D-Link DI-634M router modem wifi thingy.

Can I use this to extend my home wifi network? If so, what are the key settings i would need to check/change/tweak? I've never done this before.

I've also found this Emulator on their website, if that helps ?

Look at network bridging. Linksys device here

You might want to look to see if your device can be flashed to use dd-wrt instead. That firmware has great support for doing network bridging with consumer hardware routers.

edit: your device isn't supported unfortunately. However, many linksys devices are and the dd-wrt firmware provides much functionality for free. Further googling revealed that your device doesn't support bridging at all.

There is a supported device list here: dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Supported_Devices – David Rickman Sep 8 '09 at 6:51
