WiFi Q - 2 access Points = > Range?

I have an Orinoco RG1100 and a Linksys BEFW11S4 access points and a single cable modem. Is there some way I can combine the 2 APs to increase my range?

Yes and no

Depending on the model you could set up a wireless bridge:

[cable modem]--------[wireless bridge])  )  )  )  )  [wireless bridge 2]------[computer]

where ---- denotes a hard wire connection and ) ) is the wireless bridge.
There are many possibilities that you could use. Another method would be to run your cable modem to a broadband router and run 2 cables to differnet sections in the house - connect each one to a wireless router - this would give you 2 zones to access the net inside your home.
