Is it possible for me to configure my SB3 as a w.a.p?

I am using the SB wirelessly already. My house is long and narrow, my wireless router is at one end, the SB in the middle. If i want to use my laptop at the other end of the house (or even better, past the house out in the garage/theatre) it'd be nice to connect to the network via the SB as the signal will be stronger, is this possible?

Cheers...

No, the SB can be configured as a bridge, i.e. connecting a wired network to a wireless one, but it can't be configured as a WAP which goes the other way (connecting a wireless network to a wired one).
