On average, my house's wifi has 3 cellphones, 3 tablets, a desktop and a laptop connected to it. However when a new laptop, phone, tablet, etc. connects my laptop decides to kick the bucket and disconnect from the wifi. Can anyone help me?

Could be an ip conflict. Make sure none of them have the same ip address.

Change the ip address under the network settings on the tablets / cellphones. Select static ip. And give it an ip address

Or use the following ip address on the computers. Change the ip address to ip addresses within the range of the wireless modem you're using

yes: check "before and after" IPs on both devices

you should say what OS your running, and what model laptop

also: is this WIFI built-in to an ISP modem or a WIFI hub you bought? can i be sure a store-bought wifi hub does not have some internal connections limit is an issue?
