Disconnection when another computer joins network

The internet works great and is very fast. But, whenever any other computer in the house turns on and joins the network, the internet cuts out for about 5 minutes before it works for all computers again. Any suggestions?

Re: Disconnection when another computer joins network

Are you using a router or Windows ICS (Internet connection Sharing). If you are using a router are the connections wired or wireless ? Have you tried resetting it back to factory defaults ? Updating the firmware ? What is the exact make and model number of the device. We need details as we are not sitting next to you.
