Currently I have a cable modem feeding my linksys wireless router in my house, the router physicly connects to 3 different machines. Then, about 50-70 feet away is an office with 3 other computers. In between the router and the office is just the backdoor, the deck and then there is the office. Each computer is using their own seperate little wireless recievers, they dont give very good signal strength.

Now my question, I have this: http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/productdetail.aspx?c=us&l=en&cs=555&sku=A0130811 product, and cables, and a switch. Can I use the D-Link for a reciever of the linksys signal and feed the other computers through the switch. I have tried this but I dont know what to configure it as. If you need I can email you the manual as a Pdf. (its pretty small)

You can use a hi-gain directional antenna on the wireless router. For the office, you could use a wireless bridge with another one, or perhaps the increase in signal from the directional antenna would be sufficient to solve the problem. Some of the antennas give as much as 14dB gain, which should make a significant difference.

You can't use the D-Link router to receive from another router, they don't work that way. You need a wireless component that's designed to receive the signal from the router.
