Bit of an odd problem:

My desktop is connected to the internet through my home's wireless network and every time I log into an online game it disconnects me from the internet. This happens without signal loss or other warning signs from Windows, but my in-game ping spikes until I disconnect and I am unable to access the internet through my regular browser. I am still able to access the internet through other devices and am able to play the game through another computer which runs windows vista. All drivers and firmware are up to date.

Thanks in advance for any ideas

Another odd feature-if I have something slowly downloading in the background throughout the process I don't disconnect, which I suppose is a solution of sorts...
