Industrial synthesis for diethyl ether:

2 CH3CH2-OH    +    H2SO4, 140oC       CH3CH2-O-CH2CH3    +    H2O

Not generally useful for syntheses of ethers in the lab:

Only symmetric ethers can be made this way.

Conditions are very compound specific

     ( at 180o ethanol would yield ethylene instead of the ether)
