    Here is my problem:

    In my 3 level house I just moved to, we have a ton of computers and equipment. Right now, The cable modem is on the top floor with a Linksys wireless N router feeding all the laptops and my Mac Pro that is in it's temporary home. I am just finishing the basement, and putting my desk with Mac Pro, Vonage, and printer down there. It would be very hard to get a cable from the top floor, through the first floor, and into the basement. If I replaced the Linksys with an Airport Exreme, and put an Airport Express in the basement, could I plug the Linksys Router into the ethernet port, and then plug in my Vonage, printer, etc into that router?

    If not, is there a device that will take the wireless signal from the Linksys and allow me to plug in my hardwired peripherals?

    You should be able to do that, but you don't want a router hanging off the Airport Express. You only want a switch for that.
