Network Internet connection problem

I have a Linksys BEFW11S4 router. I have two desktop computers connected to the router on a LAN and when I connect my laptop through it's wireless setup it seems to take precedence and then prevents one of the other computers connecting. I have also tried connecting the lapton via a wired connection and it does the same thing. How can I get round the problem as I have to keep pulling out the power cable from the back of the router and reconnecting it. This then will connect the other desktop if I don't have the laptop on.

With all three computers running, check what IP addresses they actually have to ensure that there isn't a conflict with two sharing the same address. To do this, go to "Start > Run", type in...

cmd.exe /k ipconfig /all

...and click OK. This will show details of all network adapters in the PCs.
