I' trying to connect two routers wirelessly, one which connected to internet, the other is connected to PC via cable (access point mode) so i can connect the PC to internet through the two routers.
My two routers are ZTE ZXV10 W300 (internet connected, wireless enable and WPA-PSK protected), and D-Link 2730U(access point).
What I don't understand is that when I scan for wireless connections with the D-Link router, it only shows me four or five WiFi networks in my area , while I get like 10-15 wireless networks on my laptop or even my phone. Also, it won't detect the signal from the ZTE router, which I can detect also on my laptop and phone.
A access point is acting as a server...ie it is providing wireless to end devices. A router is also acting as a server so it only accept connection from a client device. To use your d-link box to connect to the zte router it would have to have a option called client-bridge which it does not. This is exactly the reverse of a AP.
