internet connection drops when I print from my network printer

I have a Brother MFC 7820N printer, XP Pro, a DSL connection, and a Netgear, MR314 Wireless .11b router. My desktop is wired into the router, as is the printer. I can also print from my notebook wirelessly. I set up the printer using the Brother install software. My internet works fine, up until I print something either wired or wireless. Then I lose my internet connection, and I have to cycle the DSL modem to get back. I've completely uninstalled and re-installed the software, and switched the ethernet cable from the printer to a different port in my router.

Any ideas how I fix this problem?
