If you connect the Mac Pro by ethernet cable to the router does it still knock out the internet ?
Using it by wireless knocks it off is unusual and there is no real reason for it to happen. Are you logging on as guest with the guest password or as a network access with the Homegroup password ?
I've not heard of this issue before and pretty much don't know why the laptop would be killing the wireless and not the wired. There must be a setting in the Mac Pro that is not compatable with the wireless frequency that your router has. You can go into the network settings of the Mac and see what it's set at for a frequency , it may be just a matter of selecting a different option for connecting.
