i am trying to move my printer out of my room. its a network laser printer and its currently connected to my router. i have a 108MBs wireless access point that i use for my laptop. my printer has a network card installed so i would rather not use usb. anyway the point was. i know i can use a usb wireless print server but i would like to be able to increase the connections on that side of the bridge, if decide to add more computers. i have a netgear wgt-624 wireless router, that i am only using as an access point to my linksys router (i know, but the netgear router is crap). is there any super geek trick i can use to make a 108MBs bridge. i thought about using another 108 MBs netgear router. i'm not sure if its possible, how would you connect two wireless routers together on the same network like a bridge.

i think d link make a 108MBs bridge, using the same chipset but i dont know if it would work.

i know if all else fails i could just use a normal 11g bridge but i already have it working at 108MBs and figure why go backward if you might not have to.

thats about it, if anybody could help me exhaust any of the posiblities that would be much appreciated.

If you are using the pre-n technology, i am not sure that there are routers that can support wireless bridging.

True MIMO uses backhaul -- wireless bridge versus WDS

The backhaul function is essentially a wireless bridge that connects one MIMO AP to another MIMO AP.

How does wireless backhaul differ from conventional WDS (Wireless Distribution System)?

AeroGuard™ dual radio design allows for dedicated AP and backhaul radios, delivering far superior capacity performance over a single radio AP configured with a WDS bridge, not to mention the MIMO performance advantage.

WDS is an Wi-Fi network feature that allows APs from some vendors to split RF channels, and thus bandwidth, between AP and bridging functions.

AeroGuard™ requires no channel splitting, but offers dedicated bandwidth for the AP and bridging functions, enabling reliable network backhauls. In addition, MIMO technology enhances the range and reliability of signal quality to produce truly business-class all wireless networks.
