We have 4 tablets, and 3 computers in our house. Two computers and the tablets run off wifi and one "main" computer is hard wired into the gateway.
When the "main" computer is turned ON, no other device in our house can connect to the wifi. Including xbox, tablets, 2 computers or any smart phone.
When the main computer is turned OFF, everything works properly. I can connect to wifi on ipad, xbox, my other computer etc etc.
We had a tech guy out here and he replaced all the fittings to all the splitters around our house. It worked for just long enough for him to leave then it stopped working again.
I have tried to disconnect the hard wired computer and make it wifi but it still doesn't work. The only way I can get wifi on everything else is if that computer is turned off.
It's very stange. We have run virus scan on everything and according to the scan everything is fine. I am lost. Any help would be greatly appreacited!

yes i have every reason to lie because i do not want this fixed...
also...the language you just typed was not mine. I have no idea what you just said. I dont know a lot about technology but I know for a fact that whenever the computer that is hard wired into our gateway is turned on, I cant get wifi.

It almost sounds like your computer's network card has it's "Terminator Mode" enabled (yes, it's an actual thing =) )
it could be that your cable going to the computer could be used incorrectly.
Could you provide:
An answer to all of these questions would be helpful so that we might be able to help you
