Needing Wireless Help


Likes # 0

I have purchased a Belkin AC750 wireless router which has access point capabilities, but those capabilities are poorly documented, and I am needing some help.

I have 2 machines that need to talk to each other wirelessly - Machine #1 has built in wifi and could talk to Machine #2 if it's radio worked, which it doesn't. I called the machine company's tech support, and I was told that I could use an access point instead of the dedicated radio (radio is $600; router/access point is under $100).

What I need is for when Machine #1 transmits wireless data for the access point to receive it and then send it via ethernet cable into the WLAN port of Machine #2, which has a static IP address of

Can I use this router to do that? If so, how do I set it up? Or does anyone know of inexpensive tech service that could help me?

The device I am trying to try not to buy is the Hoeft & Wessel 8614 pretty much because I can't find where to buy one in the US unless I buy it from my dental supply company for $569. But here are the specs and information as to what I am trying to do:
