Hi,
I have a WNR3500Lv2 router under DD-WRT v3.0-r36410 giga (07/28/18 )

Everything is fine I can print with ma mutlifunctional printer Epson SX215 connected (USB) to the router.

I am looking for help to setup the scan function as I can't find what and how to do to be able to scan while the printer/scanner device is connected (USB) to the router.
if I plug the USB calbe diectly to my laptop then (of course) I can scan.

Thanks in advance for any help and advice.

The way to go about this would be to get a router that supports dd-wrt third party firmware, has a USB port and has USB support for scanners via libsane within DD-wrt (SANE linux scanner software), and then have a scanner that is supported by libsane.

Then you would need SaneTwain to interact with the scanner across the network.

There are lots of points in this chain that you might have difficulty getting to work. It may be simpler to get a cheap nettop PC, run windows on it and plug the scanner into it. Then "share" the scanner on the network by having people access the Windows box with RDP.
