Simple.. from router #1 net output, go to the wan input of the second device
(NOT to one of the router net ports, but the WAN input)
I have two routers connected that way, and also have a Bluetooth to ethernet
device (anycom ap-2002) plugged into the second, and can use WiFi or BT from
any devices and see the whole network..
Be aware that many USB printers are NOT actually USB printers, but have
software that runs on a computer, does the actual printing, and olny uses
USB to get the data to print (many of the ones sold nowadays will NOT work
with a USB printserver, even if they are USB printers! Watch out for
anything that claims to print photos)
