wireless laptops slow down my wired desktop

  Zebrapec 13:42 10 Aug 2008

Hi, My main desktop hard wired (administrator) into a Linksys Wireless-G ADSL Gateway, works fine untill the rest of the family connect with laptops through wireless connections, then things really slow down or nearly stop, but only on the desktop computer (2 months old). The laptops work fine, okay they are a bit slower, not much. Would I be better changing to wireless also?

Try changing wireless mode to `B only` for a while.
