Internet down while file sharing

    Hello all,

    I have a WRT54G router with only 3 802.11g wireless clients (1 desktop and 2 notebooks) with DHCP enable and good signal. Router is working with wep key and mac filter security, keeping remaining settings default. ADSL 1Mbps internet works fine on all clients, until I try to copy files using windows file sharing. When I start to copy some files (mp3, apps...), internet access is lost completely on clients, and when copy ends internet starts again. I think the problem may be that file sharing takes all 54Mbps availables, keeping no bandwidth for internet service, but I am not sure and don't know how to specify on router to always keep some bandwidth for Internet.

    If anyone knows about this problem, help would be apreciated, thanks!
