Netgear WIFI Range Extender

Hi, does anyone know if I can "link" two of these so they operate as one unit?  I want to put them in different parts of the house but would prefer to only select one which would give me more mobility when using my wifi phone around the house.  In other words, if I looked at my Wireless Access Connection, I would only see one of these instead of two.

If they are all on the same SSID you should only see one.
The device be it a computer or a phone should pick up the strongest device that is closest to the access point.

Thank you.  That's what I wanted to hear.  One last thing, do these devices consume broadband if they are plugged into an outlet but are not being used?
