Vista makes PS3 connection slower

Ok, so say I have my computer on and my ps3 on at the same time. Yes, the amount of mbps has to be divided between the two in theory, I guess that makes sense. Although when my computer isn't even on it still seems to slow down my internet connection on my PS3. This ultimately leads to lag and slow download speeds.

Is there anyway around this? I've changed a few settings on my d-link router and Vista... I used to be an XP user so I'm just getting by. I might go back 2 XP.

I don't see how this is even possible with the computer not being on. If the computer was on and downloading, yes, the bandwidth would eventually be evenly spilt between the PS3 and your desktop, by natural designs and behaviour of the router.

Even if totally disconnected, I don't quite see how this behaviour can be Vista related. I reckon if you loaded XP back onto it you'd see exactly the same "effect", if that's the right word to describe it.
