Hello,

 

I am looking for a solution for my home network. I am using TP link router WDR 3600 as the main router with USB HDD attached.

 

I am looking for a second router to connect my Printer to USB so that users can access both the HDD & Printers wirelessly along with the internet

 

KIndly find the diagram of the required setup attached for your reference.

 

Kindly assist in choosing the secod router to get the required soluiton.

Hi,

 

To satisfy your needs, the second router should support USB function and access point mode/can be configured as an access point, so that there won't be double NAT existed.

 

Below is an introduction lists the difference between router mode and wireless access point mode.

Besides, regarding to the printer, please notice the compatibility list below:

Here we take Archer C3150 as an example.

May it help and have a nice day.

I would not add another router but would buy a wireless printer instead to replace the wired one. Another option would be to get a wireless print server instead of a router.
