slow computers

Two desktops,two wireless laptops,xbox 360.I know all being used slows response but is there anything I can get to make them stop loosing broadband connection and the lag.Every in house likes to be on at same time, or should I limit it to only a couple be used at one time. Thanks K

Where's the bottleneck?

Modem, router, ISP?

Yes, not everyone one at the same time will likely enhance performance

speed pretty good with one or two.Once in awhile will lose internet connection along with lagging,thats when my daughter will reset the router and we are good for awhile. router very warm at that time.

I doubt it has anything to do with the router. The reason its better after the reset is because everybodys game, movie, etc has been reset. I suggest upgrading your bandwidth.
