    Right so I bought a blackberry curve 3G yesterday and linked it to the house wireless internet which i am also running my laptop on.
    But whenever the blackberry is connected my internet keeps disconnecting on and off on the laptop, sometimes i get a little pop up saying there is a IP conflict.
    someone help this is soooooooo annoying

    Sounds like your router is trying to assign the same IP adress to both devices. You will have to do some searching to change either the router, or PC's settings from using static IP addresses
