Can I daisy-chain two Almonds and a router wirelessly to extend the range even further?  Thanks.

It should be possible to to setup multiple Almonds in "Range Extender" mode,  to bridge longer distances,  however doing so is not very practical,  as the throughput will be reduced by 50% at each Extender,  due to the "store and forward" nature of packets in this configuration.   

If you need to provide coverage in two areas in your network that are too far apart to permit using a single Almond in "Range Extender" mode,  then I would strongly recommend wiring the Almond to the main Router via CAT5e (or better) cable,  and configure the Almond in "Wireless Access Point" mode instead.
