Mac Mini 1TB Server

Mac mini - MacRumors Forums - forums.macrumors.com
I recently got one of these to use as a build server for developing iOS apps. As I started looking at the specs I noticed it has an Airport Extreme card in it. It has a fresh install of MacOS Sierra on it. Now to my question. If I were to plug this into my router, could I set it up to act as a wireless router? Right now I have a consumer grade Linksys wireless router that I have to reboot all the time. It would be great if I could eliminate that. I will be using it as a server for other things so it will be on all the time anyway, I figure I may as well get some use out of it.

Please excuse my ignorance, this is my first piece of Mac hardware. If there is an existing step-by-step guide, or a good reason not to do what I am asking please let me know.
