i am bridging two wireless networks basically b'coz i wanna be able to use the printers connected with Eithernet cable on the router Huawei B683 while i am been connected to the second router Huawei B970b which have an internet connection accessible.

Now after my extensive googling and research i have found that the routers can be bridged and i wanna make the router B970b a wireless bridge to B683 so that all the users could be able to connect to it and hence the printer accessing issue would be resolved.

All i wanna know is can i Put the IP address of the B970b in the setting>dialup>APN>Ipaddress of the wireless router B683,will it be able to access the internet on the router B970 which is wirelessly bridged?

I have attached an image for better understanding and please note both these router have been provided by the same service provide.please follow the link for image

No, you can't use the APN configuration to do what you want. That is used if you have a 3G module installed.

The firmware on those devices don't appear to support any type of wireless bridging, and it doesn't look like it is supported by dd-wrt, a third party firmware. You may find some other third party firmware that can help.

The best bet is to connect them via ethernet.
