Manual - http://www.edimax.co.uk/images/Image/manual/Wireless/BR-6226n/BR-622xN_Manual.pdf
Page 79 of the manual seems to say Yes, and section 3-4-1-6 (p.95) describes how to do it. You may want to turn off the DHCP server and/or NAT depending on how you want your Network to work. I'm sure someone will correct this, if I haven't got it right!

Thank you, thank you, thank you,
The Plusnet router Wi-Fi won’t reach the dinning room. Hoping I can solve it with this.

Possibly check out the powerline plugs at PC World at the moment - £20 for a pair :
