I have a wifi Binatone modem router 150M [model no DT 850 W] which I want to connect wirelessly with Belkin dual band N+ router [model N750 DB] so that I can make use of the USB ports on the second router for wifi printing and use flash drive as NAS drive.
How can I couple both the routers wirelessly? Thanks

Ok first off, why do you want to connect wirelessly? Is there something preventing you from connecting the two with a network cable? I ask because connecting with a patch cable is a lot simpler and I'm a firm believer in the KISS principle when it comes to computing.

What you're looking to do is create a wireless bridge between the two routers. This would require one of the two to have "wireless bridge" or "wireless repeater" capabilities (check the documentation).

Exactly how it's done is going to depend on the make/model of your routers and again, you'll have to refer to the documentation.

I am the captain of my soul.

I concur with Curt on this one: if possible connect the two with an ethernet/cat-5 cable.

It will be more stable and faster...

The use of "lan over mains" - i.e. homeplug adapters - would likely work OK; but if possible to run a cat-5cable directly then I'd go that route.

Depending on where you are on planet earth depends which brands of homeplug are available to you. In the UK (and that area 22mile and more off the east coast) one can buy Devolo units; they were the first to produce the kit and they work fine. Netgear, TPlink, make them too and I think D-link does as well.

Some the homeplug kit now includes usb connection (usb over lan..) too; but I have no personal experience with that.

I have no connection with Devolo - other than as a long term user of their early kit - all of which works well. So I naturally gravitate towards their product line as a consequence of my experience with their kit thus far. The TPLink kit seems to be well promoted int he UK at least by Maplins; and both Devolo and TPLink are in PCWorld.

I'm using a homeplug arrangement fine, same speed as a direct cable, but all my kit is on the same domestic power circuit (ring main UK). It might not be so good between differing circuits.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

"How can I couple both the routers wirelessly?"

One of them has to have the feature of wireless bridging/extending. If the feature doesn't exist you can see if DD-WRT firmware exists for either unit that provides that feature.

Otherwise you can not connect them wirelessly.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

Derek - by different ccts. I take it you mean on different power ccts - as in two ccts. each on its own fuse/mini-cct. breakers; but obviously on the same main fuse box/ etc.

I have three ring-mains in my house and a radial cct. too.

The Devolo homeplugs work fine ("talk to each other") regardless of which cct. (ring-main or radial) any of them are on.

My router and main computer "stuff" etc. is on a ground floor ring-main; and the former "office" (spare bedroom) is on a radial... which is where I have another PC (seldom used) and an elderly Epson laser (parallel port) which prints via a D-link print server over the lan...

And likely that would apply/work equally well with Netgear, TPLink etc.

Yes, I meant different power circuits. It's just that I've only ever tried them when they were all on the same ring main, so I wasn't sure how well they faired if that was not the case. Seems like they are not particularly fussy from what you have said.

mmm.. My two ring mains are one fuse box - with an RCD; the radial on another - no RCD.

Split ccts. were so as to have fridge/freezer (and central heating etc.) NOT on a rcd; thus one avoids coming home one day and finding the fridge etc. has defrosted due an rcd tripping (for whatever reason). And the radial is on that non rcd box so as to avoid again sudden trip outs due to rcd events...; as at time I rewired chez-moi I had the chance to do it that way, and the radial was to serve what then was an office of sorts...

Cannot understand why more pholks don't have the fridge/freezer and CH ccts. on a non rcd box; and at least one lighting cct. too (if not all of them). All perfectly legal and in my view much safer and wiser way to go.

I'm still on wired fuses - great, they never blow. Of-course there is a chance the house might burn down but that's a different matter.

And if they do blow.. one can always use cigarette silver paper or a thin nail... as invariably one can't find the fusewire - when required.
