2 coms, 1 router = connectivity problem

  okidot 19:27 02 Mar 2006

Hello, i may be enquiring in the wrong place but im having trouble as regards two computers sharing my 'linksys' router. i have a laptop and my friend owns a PC. im connecting by wireless and he is connecting by cable. both computers are internet active. when the 2 computers are connected to internet browsers the connection seems to be stable, but when we both are on a chat progs (seperate chat hosts)....they both disconnect from the chathosts, sometimes his stays connected and i get cut out. then, when i view my network connections it states that it is still connected , and that its signal is good.... is there anyway around this at all? everything was perfect until second computer arrived. ps im on a '1mb connection' using a cable/dsl modem. if anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated
