Can I use an airport express as a bridge/repeater of an existing wi-fi network. The root bridge is a linksys.

Yes. if you connect it via the wired ethernet port to your router then it will act as a bridge/repeater offering you a further access point to choose from. Depending on where in the house I am, the signal strengths between my Netgear Router and the Airport Express differ so I connect to the strongest one. I bought the Express primarily to stream music wireless from my iTunes library but it also served as a bridge / repeater as a second benefit.
