I have (3) computers running of a Linksys WRT54G router. (2) are hardwired and the other is Wireless.

All run and connect to the net just great when they are all ON.

However, whenever I turn this particular PC off for the night, it "somehow" disconnects the others from the Internet!!

None of these computers are Networked together either! All are running XP Pro.

What the heck is going on here ?

I'd have to believe this is some kind of electrical power and/or grounding issue. Does this happen if you reboot the computer, or only when you physically power it off? How about unplugging it's Ethernet connection and THEN powering it off, does that affect the other systems?

Sorry for the slow reply. Been blown away at work.

Yes, it happens after I reboot and turning this PC off.

I did reboot the router and that seems to have helped (for now!).
