Networking (maybe?) our Macs

My wife and I use Macs, iOS devices, and Apple networking gear. We're thinking about sharing the desk where my Mac Pro is; as a result, if she needs the desk, and I need a computer, I'd have to use her MacBook Pro. What's the best way to network our computers so that we could do our work from whatever computer we're using, have music and/or programs available, etc.? Some details inside. [more inside]

Wireless network extender/print server that connects over Ethernet?

I have a home network created by a dual-band Airport Extreme router. I have Cat 6 running from the Airport Extreme to a faraway printer where the wireless signal does not reach. Can I use this cable and an older Airport Express to act as a print server and extend my wireless network? If not, is there another device that would provide this function? [more inside]

How do I make my WiFi network stop hiding from me?

I cannot maintain a connection to my wireless network. I think it might have something to do with the EIGHTEEN other wireless networks available around me. What can I do? (And let's knock this one out early: I'm on a completely different channel from all the other networks). [more inside]

Apple Airport trouble

I just got a new broadband connection and a new SAGEM modem to go with that. All works fine with my Powerbook when I connect it directly, but I also bought a new Airport Express Base Station that just won't recognise the connection. [more inside]

My wireless Mac and wired PC transfer to each other at 2.5 MB/s. Can I speed this up any?

I've got a network in my home - one PC, connected by wire to the router, and one Apple, connected by an Airport card (which I believe is 802.11G). The fastest speed I can get transferring files from one to the other is 2.5MB/s, which seems slow. Am I right, or is this standard?
