I am connected by WiFi to a friend's computer in the house. I need to connect my Dell 2135cn printer, Apple AirPort Express and digital picture frame to my computer in the network. I have been unable to print from my laptop. They show up in Network Magic, but these items are unable to find my computer. What I would like to do is to use my Linksys WRT54GS router to connect these items to my own computer's wireless network. I connect to the house network (Motorola 3347 DSL modem/router) using an Airlink Golden N "penny" adapter. How can this be done or is there another way to make these items work?

First off, you sound like you have a lot of wireless equipment. You need to have everything hook up to ONE router. Not multiple. If you want to use YOUR router instead of the Netopia based 3347 DSL router, you will need to have it placed into bridged mode and configure your router for PPPOE internet connection and insert your email and password associated with your DSL account. Most times its easier just to use the 3347 routers built in wireless. You will just have to configure your devices to connect to it.
