      Internet crash when I connect another PC

      HELP!
      I have a sony vaio with Vista Prem, an IBM with XP and a old Vaio with 2000. When I connect the Vista- No Problem. When I connect any other laptop, the speed drops to "slower then dial up" and then drops completely.

      Whichever order I connect the laptops up, if more than 1 is connected to the NETGEAR 834GT, the speed is crap!

      I only get about 3mb a it is, but surely I should be able to connect at least 2 laptops and get a reasonable speed!

      By the way this is with the wired connection, if I try with the wireless the same thing happens.

      I have to reboot the router every time I connect a laptop just to get any connection at all.

      Any ideas would be great as when I called SKY they told me it was a microsoft problem as I was running 2 different OS's. I got angry at that point as I thought the router was able to connect 4 PC's!

      Please Help!

      I dont think there is a lot sky can do as it is an issue with your setup as opposed to the signal sky is sending.

      Try updating the LAN drivers.

      Is the performance okay if each PC is connected on its own?

      Hi,

      Yes. If I connect each laptop on its own they connect perfectly ok. I have now setup a network and all of that is ok, all sharing no problem. It is just the internet speed- or lack of it- when I connect more then one at a time.

      I will try the LAN drivers, but the sony vaio with Vista is only 3 months old. I will have a go!

      Thanks
