I am on a wireless connection. Sometimes my brother plays a game or downloads stuff. I find my connection slows down when he does. Is this uncommon. I mean, it never happened before. he played those games all the time. any tips or suggestions.

Wireless is half-duplex, and it also shares the bandwidth with other machines using the same wireless access point. It's not unusual for multiple connections to really slow things down.
