this is a problem, you don't disable DHCP on your computer.
. I disabled the DHCP by going to Administrative Tools>Component Services>Local Services> DNS client.
this is probably what you're wanting to do. can you look through your router (linksys) configuration pages for something called "access point mode" or "bridge mode"? do you have the manual for your router?
have i disabled DHCP in the satellite modem or the Linksys modem, i need to disable it in the Linksys modem I think, but how do I do this, and is it likely to fix the problem?
it sounds as though your satellite modem (hughesnet or someone else?) is also a router, it's not advised for most home users to have 2 routers in a home network (it can be done but you have to know what you're doing). turning one router (your linksys in this case) into a wireless access point instead of a router will usually rectify the issues that can be caused by having 2 routers in the mix. an access point is basically a wireless switch or hub and allows you to connect multiple computers into the LAN that's created by your satellite modem/router.

Here is the user guide for your device
you might try resetting the AP back to factory defaults. there should be a reset button on the back of the AP right next to the ethernet port. unplug the power, hold that button in and plug the power back in while continuing to hold the reset button for 5 to 10 seconds, then let go of the reset button. you'll have to set up any wireless security again.
