Specs: Windows XP
I have a cable modem connected to a linksys router. I have
Room 1
- PC connected LAN to the router.
- NAS hooked up to the router.
- Mac book connected wirelessly
- HTPC connected to router
Room 2
- iMac to switch
- macbook to switch
- NAS to switch
- Printer to switch

I want to be able to have one set up with: modem, router, PC, NAS,HTPC in one room. AND, iMac, NAS, network printer, in another room hooked up to a switch (with a possible wireless access point, if needed) but on the same network. Is this possible. (basically i want to connect the setups of both rooms on the same network.)
Please help.
Thank you...

but i do not want to run wires. it is a long distance and it is in an apartment...if I add a wireless access point to the switch will that do the same thing as running a wire?

You will get better performance by running A wire to the switch

Access points are wired to the router not an independent switch. AP's don't communication ap to ap but are meant to extend wireless range.

If you want the following;

to connect wirelessly to the router you need to install a wireless bridge. This requires bridging equipment at both the router and the switch.

Google wireless bridging for more info.
Google your routers model to see if if will support wireless bridging [so you only need bridge equipment at the switch end]
