Two modem / wireless routers?

I have my netgear DG834G working OK at the moment. It connects to my phone line to receive the Virgin Media broadband service (slow slow slow), and is connected via a wired connection to my main PC... just because the main PC is close enough to the phone line to enable this (at the moment). I have another PC, and a laptop, and I can connect those to the network via the netgear.

Thing is, there are a couple of spots in our house where the signal is quite weak, and this limits the positioning of the second PC and the laptop.

I have an option to get another DG834G for nothing, and wonder whether I can use that to improve my network coverage... can I connect the second DG834G to another phone point (e.g. upstairs), so that I have a strong signal everywhere in the house?

Or can you not connect two modems (after all each DG834G is a modem + router) to the same broadband line?

Any way to make use of two DG834Gs in this way, in any configuration?

No. Wrong device. Only one DSL modem can be on the phone line. Best way to improve coverage is with a better antenna. Another option is a wireless access point connected by cable, phoneline networking, or powerline networking.
