cheap home wifi extender - 2nd router plugged in via it's LAN port?

I seem to recall that someone said/posted that you could take a
regular home router and plug it into your network via one of the LAN
ports and it would broadcast the same wifi info/extend the current
wifi setup.

Is that right?  Would I want to go and disable the 2nd router's DHCP
server?  How does it know to rebroadcast(?) the same wifi info/SSID
and authentication?

Thanks,

Rich
