I have a Linksys N Router WRT-160NV2, HP Pavillion a1720n desktop and an HP Pavillion dv5t laptop. The laptop has built-n g wireless. The desktop is not wireless. Problem is, if I'm on the web using my desptop and soneone else is on the web with the laptop, I get disconnected from the router (desktop) after a few minutes.

This seems to only occur when both are on the web, not when only 1 is connected. I've contacted HP and Linksys and they don't seem to know what the problem is. Both have asked me to call the other vendor, so I'm at a loss. Any help is appreciated.
