What would cause my son's computer to get bumped off the web as soon as his Girlfriend goes on the web using her laptop? I have two computers at home and I can be online and surfing the web with both without any problems. I would think they are using different names for there computers, two different address. The only thing they are sharing is the router. Both have Vista, one is Ultimate, and one is Premium.

You need to check the "Computer" names and even the user name.
Some OEM's use a default computer and user name for all of their machines. So if they were NOT changed when the machines were set up then they could be the same.

I had kinda figured that may have had something to do with it, just wasn't sure. I will check both the laptop and pc for name's used in both. I had read that if you had two computers set up with the same name you may run into problems. Thanks again.

That should be "WILL run into problems".
