Hi I have this router I would like to increase the range of the wi-fi. I have brought this. Can i combine the two to increase the speed or range? I've had a look on google be must admit i'm a little confused. Thanks.

Combining the two won't get you too much. The N router already will be faster and have a greater range the the current wireless G router.

If you are sharing your connection you can set up two different networks and have other people use the G router and save the N for yourself to save you some bandwidth.

Sure. You set up one as a wireless access point some distance from the first one (for example, on on each floor of the house, or on opposite sides. You have to have a wired connection between them, though.

That doesn't increase the speed or the range of either router, though, it just gives you more coverage.
