Question WRT150N and WRE54G: can I connect these two?

Hi there,
I have been using my WRT150N v1.1 for a couple of years and have always had spotty Wi-Fi signal on my deck (but it's been flawless within my home). My brother just gave me an extra WRE54G v3 which he no longer uses. So... I was wondering:

- Can I use the WRE54G with my WRT150N?

I've been reading on this for hours and I've come to the conclusion that "no" is the answer since my WRT150N is not a "WDS-based product." Is this final determination correct?

The one great thing that I have going for me is that I already have a very long Ethernet cable running from my WRT150N all the way out to my deck (so that I can plug my laptop directly into the network when I am on my deck, due to Wi-Fi not being strong).

I was hoping that I would then not have to rely on WDS to use the WRE54G. Is there a way to set the WRE54G up so that instead of being a "repeater," it acts as an "access point?" I was thinking that I could plug the WRE54G into the aforementioned Ethernet cable and use the Wi-Fi capability of the WRE54G to connect my laptop and iPhone to my LAN.

Is there a way? Thanks so much!
