Hi.. When I am not using my laptop, the PC's connection is fine, but once I'm using it (not downloading or uploading, just basic time wasters, YT, FB, 9Gag..), boyfriend's PC gets disconnected repeatedly no matter if he's playing online games (WOW), or just watching YT and stuff.. His PC is closer to the router, it's newer and stronger in any way, it's a gaming computer.. My question is.. what can it be about my comp, that steals all the wi-fi? We've had this problem once before in another apartment with other computes, but back than it was one roommate had Ubuntu and when she was online, all of us with windows were screwed.. once she installed windows all of our connections were just fine.. but now me and the boyfriend both have win10.. I have built in adapter, he's using usb.. How can I fix my comp? Thanks for answers

Try shutting down both computers, then reboot the router. Next, turn on one computer, then make sure you can connect to the internet, then do the same for the other computer.

Do you know if any of the computers are using static IPs?
