      Using Computer and Laptop at the same time

      We have just started with Sky Broadband today. Was very impressed at first but this evening while I was on the main computer, my husband couldn't use the laptop. Was very sluggish and then nothing happened at all.

      I also found that the computer was starting to go rather sluggish and couldn't get on to Hotmail to check emails.

      As soon as my husband logged off I had no problems.

      Has anybody any suggestions please? Please can you use simple language I'm not mechanically minded!!

      Sluggish as in web browsing or the pc being sluggish?

      Oh, Did you install the software that came with the CD?

      Web browser sluggish. Was OK in the afternoon but this evening my husband was ready to throw the laptop out the window.

      The Sky Engineer set it all up for us.

      Try rebooting the router, I have to reboot the router each night before I use it or I get only 10-20kbps... Once its rebooted everything appears to work as it should... I have no idea why the router needs a reboot to work effectively though...
