Your wired and wireless network should work under Linux, as there are drivers for both in the kernel.

Don't think you will get that USB router working, they are usually junk to begin with, ethernet is much better and easier.

That D110 appears to be a winmodem, it may be possible with a lot of work.

Wireless card is well supported under the ipw2200 driver.

Ethernet is supported with the b44 driver, and should be picked up automatically by Fedora.

Scanner is supported under Sane.

Good luck on the printer, Canon doesn't work well with the open source driver developers.
