I realize it boosts the signal when it is directly connected via ethernet, but will it pick up the signal wirelessly and become a "repeater"?
Not from your modem/router using wireless only.
The AirPort Extreme can "repeat" or "extend" a wireless network...using wireless only.....if it is connected to another Apple AirPort Express, AirPort Extreme or Time Capsule.
It cannot "extend" a wireless signal....using wireless only....if it is used with a 3rd party router.
Another way of saying the same thing is that you always need a minimum of two Apple routers if you want to extend the wireless signal using wireless only.
