Hey i was wondering if it were possible to use my Actiontec GT701-WG router to pick up the signal from the other end of my house (because it is very weak in my room) and then allow me to connect my computer to the hard wire Ethernet port to get the internet that the wireless is broadcasting? Thanks in advance.
