    Hi, I have a DLink DIR 412, which I currently use to access the Internet, via a 3G USB modem, which is plugged into it.
    I also have a DLink DIR 632 wireless N 8-port router, which I would like to connect to my DIR 412 network (named GEELAN3), simply so that I can connect a USB printer to it, and hopefully provide network access to it.

    How on earth do I achieve this?

    Is it possible to connect the DIR 412 & DIR 632 in some way, so that I can provide network access to my printer, via the 632, while also providing wifi Internet access via the 412….?

    All suggestions gratefully accepted!
