I am replacing old D-Link DI-714P+ router with E1200.
The old configuration was a printer connecting to D-Link router, and allow for wireless printing.
Therefore, may I know how do I configure E1200 so that I still can print wirelessly, while connected to E1200 network.
Assuming the printer still connected to Dlink router, can we print to E1200 then bridge to Dlink ?

If you will replace the old router with the E1200 you simply need to configure the router to work with the modem and setup the wireless settings using the CD. If the printer is connected wired to the Dlink router you simply need to disconnect it from the Dlink and connect it to the E1200 router. After doing that the printer should work and you should be able to do wireless printing. However if the printer is wireless capable and you want to connect that wirelessly to the E1200, then you will need to setup the wireless printer to connect to the wireless settings setup for the E1200 router (you can refer to your printer documentation for that).
Now if you will leave the Dlink router connected and if you just want to cascade the E1200 router to it then there is a different configuration for that. Base on my understanding you want to leave the printer connected to the dlink and you would like to connect wirelessly to the E1200 router right? Then you need to connect the E1200's ethernet port (one of the yellow ports) to the Dlinks ethernet port as well. This is called LAN to Lan Connection. To know how to do that then click on the link below:
After doing it you can then Configure the wireless settings of the E1200 manually since you cannot setup the router using the CD with LAN to LAN configuration.

you'll just have to configure your Linksys router to have the same wireless settings as your D-link. I also suggest setting the router IP the same as the old router, as well.
