Default Connectivity issues

We are using a 2Wire 2701HG Router with SBC Yahoo DSL. We have a HP Desktop (Presario using XP) hooked up via the ethernet cable and 2 laptops accessing wirelessly. The Desktop continually loses internet connection, especially when one of the laptops (Presario V6000 using Vista) is accessing a particular gaming site (Warrock) but the other laptop (Dell running XP) doesn't lose connection at all. I have used the ethernet cable with this laptop to verify that it is not the problem and the network adapter in the desktop indicates that it is functioning normally. Could a particular site be causing this? I have gone to tech support for all products without resolution. My roomates are going crazy, so any ideas would be great.

Default Re: Connectivity issues

Your bandwidth is too narrow when gaming to handle all of them at once. Check your lan settings in the card properties to see if you can widen the bandwith. Not all lan card set up in this manner but my wireless does. Might, if that fails, want to contact your ISP to get more bit rate.
