Can I use my router to connect to another router that is connected to
the internet? In other words, use my router as if it's like one of
those PCI wireless network cards or usb wifi dongle things? My router
is a WRTG54L, thanks.

No problem-- as long as you use a black cord with a yellow stripe.

Only if your router can be put into "Client/bridge" mode. Check the manual.
