Linksys Range Expander

Hey, everyone...

I have a situation I was hoping someone might be able to help me with:

I have a Linksys range expander on my home network. The thing is, if I connect to the range expander I can connect to the Internet, however I cannot connect to other computers (all Macs) on my network that are connected to the wireless router; nor can I print from that Mac either

Please note that the range expander is propagating the router's wireless network, so I see only one wireless network SIDD.

Is it that the range expander will not communicate certain protocls required by apple for the Macs to talk to one another? What else?

Anybody has any idea about this? Appreciate any help. Thanks.:mac:
