Using two routers to extend a network

I have recently been faced with this challenge, partly for learning, as it’s kind of an enthusiast thing and partly because I might actually need to to that in the near future. Since the title might seem a bit vague or ambigous to some, let me first make a bit clear exactly what it is I’m after. How about we start by listing interpretations? (My goal and the whole point of all this can be seen to later.)
Router A= TL-WR841N, and this one’s configured to connect to the internet using PPTP
Router B = Tenda W268R,

  1. I have two routers, and I want B┬áto act as a wireless access point to extend it’s range.
  2. I have two routers, and I want B to have a LAN of it’s own, with A as a gateway providing access to the internet.
  3. I want to do either of the things listed above over a wireless bridge.

Let me say this much. I am a newbie. I’m not much of a networking guy, nor do I really know how this is going to work. I’m simply Google-ing and experimenting.
In the next few posts, I will explain what I have tried and what was the outcome.
