Airport drops when using Ethernet

I have had a good look around and cannot find a specific answer.
The MacBook connects to the internet via a Netgear wireless router, works just fine.
I have a largish hard drive on my old G4 that I have set-up as a Time Machine drive, the G4 has no wireless so it is connected directly via ethernet (directly to the MacBook - not the router)
Both machines have similar IP addresses and are set to use the same subnet
Whenever I power up the G4 and connect the Ethernet to perform a TM back-up, my Airport connect runs down to zero, its fine once I disconnect Ethernet again.
Its annoying but if there is a solution that keeps both connections active then I'd be a little happier
Thanks allMember of the Month September 2008 & August 2012 | Found advice useful? – use the rep system
