When my desktop is online via ethernet, wifi stops working

Specs: Windows Vista, AMD64 Phenom X3/3GB
When my desktop is online via Ethernet, wi-fi stops working. A signal is detected, but is very unstable and often doesn't connect to the Internet at all, on any device. As soon as the desktop is no longer trying to access the Internet, all other wireless connections work without a problem.

Base computer is Windows Vista Home Premium with all latest updates installed.

Other connections include 2 laptops (one Win7, one PCLinuxOS), 2 Kindle Fire, Wii, iPod Touch, four cell phones, and Sony Media Player. They're never running all at once. But any number of them can run fine-- as long as the desktop isn't online at the time.

This just started about 2 weeks ago.

Ideas?

See the results of the command ipconfig /all

See if it shows a private ip range for the wired when connected or a public ip address.

Hang up and live.
