Question - mend, repair, fix

loss of internet connection?

hi, i wonder if anyone can help me out.
i am on aol broadband via a netgear dg834g v3 with a phoneline connection.
my pc is connected via a lan in port 1, my son's xbox is connected via a lan in port 2, and his pc is connected via a wireless dongle.
when my son wants to use his xbox, or pc and i am not using my pc, we only turn the power on for the router and everything works fine, but if at some point, i turn on my pc,( while my son is online ) the internet connection is lost.
we then have to switch everything off, and start from scratch ( and hopefully get re connected ).
I also have a d-link dsl-2640r router, which i tried swapping with the netgear, but got the same problem.
the strange thing is that this never used to happen before and i can't understand what might have changed to cause this problem.
any help would be greatly appreciated.

You could also try a system restore point as you say it didnt happen before. Try to remember when it started happening then go to, all programs, accessories,system tools, system restore, click on it, find a date before you started having problems then restore your computer to that point

First of all don't turn your router off when not in use. They are designed to run 24/7.

Next go into the Ethernet/WiFi settings for each of the devices and ensure that they are set to use DHCP. In other words they should not have Fixed IP IP Addresses.
