Internet gaming on a network

I have set up a network of three computers at home using wireless adapters, ICS, and broadband. There are no problems until my son starts playing an internet game on After about 5 minutes he gets disconnected. I used to think it was a problem to do with incorrect port settings (or something) on Norton Firewall but if this were the case, then he wouldn't get on the site in the first place. If, on the other hand, he accesses the net exclusively using the bb connection, then no problems - except the others PCs can't use it. Is there another solution, please?

InCog, it maybe that you might require a static IP address?

How do I go about getting one of these?

InCog, i'm not a gamer so i'm not 100% sure on this but, have a look on the gaming site you are using to see if one is needed.
