    When vista computer comes online, it kicks off all other computers

    I have a wireless network with 3 computers as follows:
    OSX
    XP and
    VISTA

    I have never had any problems with the OSX and XP computers where it was
    just two of those. Since the Vista computer has come into the picture I have
    been having some problems. Let me describe them briefly....the two non-Vista
    machines are online and working just fine...then as the vista computer boots
    up, the user logs in and the wireless card in there tries to connect to the
    network, the other two laptops get kicked off for about 30seconds....Has
    anyone else run into this issue? Any one know how to fix it?

    Thanks.
