Hi,

 

I have a homebuilt desktop PC running Windows 7 and my Dad has an Aspire 5310 Series laptop, also with Windows 7. My router is a Netgear DG834GT and we have a 8mbps ADSL service from Pipex.

 

The connection on my Dad's laptop works fine when my computer is turned off, but if I turn it on and use the Internet, his connection goes extremely slow or stops loading pages entirely. My connection meanwhile always works fine.

 

Please can someone advise me of some way to ensure that my Dad can use the Internet whilst I'm using it?

 

Thanks,

Joe

No, we're both using wireless and are the same distance from the router.
