msm410 as a repeater for belkin

Last Modified: 2015-03-27
I have a couple retired msm410's that I am no longer using at the office that I am attempting to use with my home belkin wifi router.  Currently I have them set up in autonomous mode with their own ssid pulling DHCP from the Belkin via the LAN.  what I would like to do is set these up as a repeater for the belkin to help cover more of my property under the same global SSID.  I have tried meshing the msm to the mac for the belkin to no avail.  I do not see any options for a mesh in the belkin.  is this possible or will I need to run a separate ssid for the hp's?  Or would it work just as well if I just set all of them to the same SSID / encryption / password?
