If it's just a normal router, no.

You need a wireless repeater, which has a receiving antenna and a transmitting antenna.

You could use it as an access point though - run a cable into a room you don't get reception in and plug in your G router there.

Well i DID it with out the wireless but it was a pain i had to change that routers local IP address......well my speed before the "bridge" was 42 down and 23 up and 21 ping. With the "bridge" i had 21 down and 16 up.... well i guess no "bridge" for me
