Okay, so here is the situation. I go through Qwest for our wireless internet service. The router for our service is upstairs in our two-story house. We have a few different electronic devices running off of the internet at any given time, including 2 iMac G5's, an Intel Based MacBook, a Wii, and a PC Laptop that my father uses downstairs occasionally.

Well, it SEEMS like our internet service is the most reliable when all but one device is turned off. What i mean by this is that our internet seems to be the most reliable when there is only one computer on at a time. Otherwise, when either my brother and I are using the internet simultaneously, or my computer is on and i get online with the Macbook, the internet will frequently cut in and out every 5 minutes.

We have contacted Qwest and had our router changed 3 times, and still we have the same results. I dont want to go through the hassle of a 4th router, and I thought it may have something to do with the computers themselves. What could be the problem? Are the macs running on some same frequency or something that could be causing the issue? Any help is deeply appreciated, for this problem is severely annoying.

Any information will be given if asked for.

Thanks! ^^
