    Yes, you can, when you set up the AirPort Extreme just select "Extend Wireless Network" and select the network you want to connect to, and it will automatically go into Bridge mode. If that is your only purpose of buying one (For multiple USBs), you just have to buy a USB hub and that's done, but if your Linksys router doesn't support USB hubs, then you should buy an AirPort Express (Less money, same functionality [USB with support for a hub]).
