If you mean some sort of wifi-ethernet bridge where you can take an ethernet connection from HE and plug it into this thing, which then creates a wifi bridge back to the router... yes, no reason why it wouldn't work. Not sure I would want to leave it that way full time, but temporarily it should work just fine.
