I have a netcomm modem (NB14) and since last weekend a Router (Tenda S108)
It seems ever since I connected the modem to the router and when my son and myself are playing on the internet at the same time my connection sometimes drops (not his!) and the page gets displayed of can not be opened.
Is there a program where you can choose how much broadband you can give my sons computer?
How an I solve this problem? am not very technical with modems and routers.. :(

There is, but not with that modem / router.

From what I can tell ,the Tenda S108 is just a network switch?
The NB14 is quite a good make / model, so it should be reliable in my opinion. When it says the page cannot be displayed, your computer doesn't also say that the cable is unplugged does it?

Who's your ISP? I wonder if it could be DNS related ...

If it's DNS issues, then try changing your DNS to OpenDNS?

If it's Slingshot, coz they're apparently having issues today, then you're just fresh outta luck unfortunately :(
