Wireless bridge

Hi there I have a BT home hub and an old linksys router. I want to link the two wirelessly to extend my Internet access to my studio in my garden. With the router in the studio and hub in the house.

Is this possible?

Almost certainly not, but what is the merit in trying to get the Linksys router to operate as a bridge, rather than have the computer(s) in the studio connecting wirelessly directly to the BT Home Hub?

Not got the range of the BT hub. Wanted to put router in house to extend BT range from front of house to back then bridge to studio in garden.

Would suggest homeplugs would be the easiest solution if the studio is on the same mains distribution board as the house.
