I need to bridge a dlink router (DWL-2100ap) for a printer that has a wired ethernet connection. The company uses a wireless network, so I need to make the connection between this dlink router and another (DIR-355), which is a bridge itself - the main router is a linux server. So basically, I just need that printer to be shared on the network, but without a wired connection between the dwl-2100ap and the other wireless router (DIR-355), which everybody uses for the internet connection.
I've searched so much on the internet, but haven't found a solution to my problem yet. I've tried the AP client mode, but I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong exactly.
The lan network has 192.168.0.0/24 pool. I don't need this dlink router (2100ap) to broadcat its ssid, I just need the printer to be connected through it
I'm probably lacking in details right now, but I really want to understand at least theoretically what the problem might be.
After choosing the AP client mode, I scanned for APs, chose the right one, entered the wpa-psk key etc.
I also need badly some logging for this router. The log that I've accessed was superficial, so I need to know if the router actually is able to connect to the other router or not, and if not, why. Is there any way I can find this out?
Thank you beforehand for your patience
