Default home network

does anyone know how I can get a wireless network going in my house so that three computers can be logged on the net at the same time? I have the router all configured and the wireless cards pickup the network and log on to it but when another tries to log on the net with the wireless card it kicks the wired main comp that's plugged into the router off the net. Any help would be excellent

Some more info is needed. What kind of connection do you have? Cable? DSL? What kind of router do you have? What operating systems do you have etc. Typically, if you have a router that is connected, all you have to do is get your wireless cards to connect and you are set. Are the SSID's all the same?

The SSID is not the problem here. There should only be one SSID here (gateway/router). Are you seeing the wired link light on the router go off when the other wireless computers connect?
