I'm a new mac user so i don't know much about how airport work ? At home i got a macbook and an imac, when i try t connect to my wireless it only work for one mac at a time, when i have internet on my macbook the imac lost the internet and the other way around. Is this because i need to buy an airport base station ?

No you do not need to.

Although highly unlikely, it can be the subnet your router is set to. The subnet might be allowing only for one client at a time. Check that the IP addresses are whenever you successfully connect with either machine.
