The speed of my wireless internet slows way down when I try using 2 or computers at the same time. What would be the cause, it never did it before.

If you use more than one computer you are sharing the bandwidth available to them. But of course if the wireless connection is poor that becomes more of an issue.

Try changing channels in the router -- the different frequencies work better or worse depending on environs. If you can detect neighbouring wifi, try a channel 5 stops from the strongest.

The router has to deal with hearing two people and once, and there is more rebroadcasting because of this... This is a small scale of how bad it can happen, but this is also why Cisco people go to school to learn how to do large scale networks.. network collisions!
