Will an airport extreme work as a wireless internet expansion if it is connected to a existing wireless router? Router>ethernet>airport?

I already have a verizon router which is far away from my room in which i need wireless internet. I currently have one ethernet cable running to my room which is connected directly to the router. Will the airport extreme act as a wireless internet range expansion?

    Yes. Locate the AirPort Extreme somewhere between the wireless router and your wireless computer/equipment and use AirPort Utility to setup the Extreme to extend the current wireless network. Save the Ethernet cable for another purpose.
